Narrator:Listen to a conversation between a student and a facilities manager at the university.
Student:Hi. I'm Melanie, the one who's been calling.
Manager:From the singing group, right?
Student:From the choir.
Manager:Right, the choir. It's nice to finally meet you in person. So, you are having problems with...
Student:Noise. Like I explained on the phone we've always had our rehearsals in the Lincoln Auditorium every day at 3 o'clock and it's always worked just great.
学生:噪音。正如我在电话里所讲述的那样，我们一直以来都把我们的排练安排在林肯礼堂，时间 3 点，这个安排一直都还好。
But the past few weeks with the noise, it's been a total nightmare since constructions started next door on the science hall.
Manager:Oh, that's right. They're building that addition for new laboratories.
Student:Exactly. Anyway, ever since they started working on it, it's been so noisy we can barely hear ourselves sing.
Manager:Let alone sing.
Student:Forget about singing. I mean, we keep the windows down and everything, but once those bulldozers get going, I mean those machines are loud.
We've already had to cut short two rehearsals and we've got a concert in 6 weeks.
我们现在已经缩短了两次排练的时间，并且我们 6 周之后就有一场演出。
Manager:Well, that's not good. I'm assuming you've tried to reschedule your rehearsals.
They don't do construction work at night.
Student:I ran that by the group, but there were just too many.
I mean evenings are really hard.
It seems like everyone in the choir already has plans and some even have classes at night.
Manager:And what about the music building?
Student:You know, originally we were booked in one of the rehearsal rooms in the music building, but then we switched with the jazz ensemble.
They're a much smaller group and they said the acoustics, the sound in that room, was better for them.
So having us moved to a bigger space like the Lincoln Auditorium seemed like a reasonable idea.
Student:All that noise. I don't know. I just wonder if the jazz ensemble knew what was going to happen.
Manager:Well, that wouldn't be very nice.
Student:No. But it really was quite a coincidence.
Anyway, now the music building's fully booked, mornings, afternoons, everything, we just need a quiet space.
And it has to have a piano.
Manager:A piano. Of course some of the other auditoriums have pianos, but that's not going to be easy.
Student:You think they're pretty booked up?
Manager:Probably. But it can't hurt to check. What about Bradford Hall? I remember a piano in the old student center there.
Student:At this point, we'd be grateful for any quiet place.
Manager:Can you... How flexible can you be on times?
You said no evenings, but what if I can't find something open at 3 o'clock?
Can you move earlier or later?
Student:I wish I could say another time would be okay, but you know how it is, everybody's already got commitments for the whole semester 2:30 or 3:30 would probably be okay, but I don't think we could go much outside that.
Manager:Well, check with me tomorrow morning. I should've found something by then. It might not be ideal...
Student:As long as it's got a piano and nobody's putting up a building next door, we'll be happy.
