Built - 1983
Mansfield is best known to be the town that the Tweeter Center is located, formerly known as Great Woods. Since its conception in 1983, by Mary Smith Associates - Landscape Architects and Planners, the 900-acre public amphitheatre has accommodated countless popular and classical music performances as well as now being the summer home of the Pittsburgh Symphony. During sell-out shows, more than 20,000 patrons have enjoyed the performances in New England's largest amphitheatre.
The structure has a 19,900 seating capacity in the pavilion itself and general admission on the lawn on the rear and side areas. Of course, on a sold-out evening, seating is on a first-come, first-served basis and patrons are welcome to bring blankets. Video screens on the lawn and at concession areas make it possible not to miss a moment of the show. All performances are on a rain or shine basis. Thus the Tweeter Center is a very friendly place to visit during warm summer evenings since the setting provides for an ideal atmosphere for a concert by some of the hottest talents to world-renowned orchestras and very well-established performers and groups.
