Limitations of the current performance hall hindered large group performance in the existing multi-purpose music hall, it lacked an appropriate acoustical stage environment and size. Large performance groups found themselves both behind the proscenium and in front of it.
A new modifiable one-piece orchestra shell transforms the stage to accommodate a full range of musical genres. A mobile proscenium arch allows or opera and music theater productions.
The distinct neo-deco quality of the audiences chamber was enhanced by featuring refurbished interior elements; textured wall moldings, brass signage and railings, and unique wood chair rails.
A new grand entrance way through reconstituted existing spaces furnishes the public and the student body with a larger, more accessible, and secure entrance but also give patrons direct access to the renewed Neidorff-Karpati Hall.
