This new facility was designed to consolidate the School’s theater arts, dance arts, fine arts and music arts on campus, and includes the “Pavilion,” a 3-story, 715-seat concert hall, as well as practice rooms, ensemble rooms, classrooms and faculty offices. The Pavilion features a music listening room and state-of the-art acoustics for performances and rehearsals. Operable wall panels open to a terrace and lawn for large community concerts.
Inside, a flat floor orchestra with loose seating, like that of the Boston Symphony Hall, provides flexibility for a variety of functions. The center is sited to capture the panorama of a nearby lake and mountains. The new building was constructed of recycled and sustainable materials and is LEED certified.
