Those aren’t wagon wheels that passersby spotted earlier this year during construction of the Hamel Music Center at the corner of Lake Street and University Avenue. The so-called windows are sound chambers — part of a system that will help provide optimal acoustics in the building’s concert hall, recital hall, and rehearsal spaces. The $55.8 million project is funded solely with private money, including a $25 million gift from the Mead Witter Foundation.
