New 125,000 sf concert hall and school building, to include a performance hall for up to 1000 seats, associated front of house, back of house and support spaces, administrative offices, classrooms and practice rooms, 300-seat recital hall, orchestral rehearsal room, and recording suite.

Careful coordination of acoustical properties of structural elements with Kirchoff, included iterative design of building mass and structural material properties, and introduction of acoustical isolation joints in foundations and superstructure.

Hybrid construction includes a novel composite wood/steel truss system.

Long span reinforced concrete seating "bridge" in concert hall allows for complete exterior opening/sliding door.
