Here are some of my photos from last Sunday.

Here you can see the world's largest disco ball in action.
|Tafelmusik at the Hearn|
It was quite amusing seeing Tafelmusik in such an unusual space. The acoustics were ok, but not amazing. They often had to pause between numbers to wait for the elevator to stop moving. Fortunately, it didn't run during the middle of a piece, or I was able to tune it out. I wonder if that affected The James Plays. The set was a bit further from the elevator than the music stage, but the sound probably echoed throughout the whole Hearn anyway.
So I think they would have to spend a fortune to turn this into a permanent art gallery/event space, and it doesn't help that it is definitely off the beaten path and transit options are quite limited. Biking down wasn't too bad, however, though I would be quite hesitant to bike back after dark.
The Hearn is definitely worth a look, and pretty much everything will be on view through Sunday, so there is almost a whole week left to go check it out.
