Has anyone invented a quick, lightweight, and inexpensive acoustic wall, a hard-surface wall/backdrop that will reflect sound so that outdoor audiences are better able to hear the telling, and with securing options so that the backdrop won’t blow away with the first gust of wind?
It would also be great to have something that works to define the area without destroying the ambiance of the natural setting.
I’d love to hear ideas, stories of success, … and stories of failure.
There is a story for every time and purpose under heaven.

The smoother the material, the better the sound bounces of giving you good
acoustics. From what I know, glass and concrete is best but wood is also
good although it does absorb more waves. There are a whole bunch of DIY
videos on YouTube as to how to make your own acoustic backdrop. I’ve seen
choirs perform with sheet backdrops, mikes installed around them and
amplifiers at the front so ppl could hear them. It isn’t perfect but it
works pretty well.
