A new color scheme and wall sconces recall our other performance spaces, and a generous use of wood adds warmth and acoustical reflection. A totally new system allows theatrical-style lighting for recitals and provides brighter, energy-efficient overhead lighting for classes. A redesign of the entire platform area includes a new, acoustically contoured "shell" ceiling, a wood stage wall with an acoustically transparent scrim to cover the chalkboard for concerts, a motorized projection screen, a lighted chalkboard, and a newly refinished hardwood floor. A new wood floor replaces the old gray carpet in the seating area and makes the room sound much more live. The final touch is a set of wood-finished acoustical diffuser panels on the back wall.
