Abstract: Abstract Objective: subjective assessment of the sound of orchestras in the concert hall of the Lviv Philharmonic. Methods: analytical, empirical, observation, comparative, theoretical cognition, analysis and synthesis, and the method of interviews. Results: based on the analysis of scientific literature on the method of subjective evaluation of the acoustic properties of concert halls, evaluation criteria were established and a questionnaire was developed to interview research participants. Subsequently, subjective evaluation was confirmed by objective acoustic parameters and correlations were established between them. Scientific novelty: in an article for the first time carried out the assessment of sound of orchestras in the concert hall of the Lviv Philharmonic by scientific studies of the phenomenon of the subjective perception of the musical material. Practical significance: the main provisions and conclusions of the article can be used in scientific and practical activities in determining the acoustic properties of concert halls, as well as their correction.

Keywords: Keywords: Subjective assessment, objective parameters, subjective criteria, concert hall, orchestra, questionnaire
