Performing Arts Center

About: The University of Mount Union is currently working on a significant renovation and addition to the existing performing arts facility. The new Performing Arts Center includes a new lobby, performance hall, black box theatre, green room, scene shop, costume shop, dressing area, art gallery and choir room as well as a renovated band room. The total estimated cost for the Center is $13 million.

The performance hall provides seating for more than 450 people, including a balcony and orchestra area. A catwalk above the hall will allow for access to lighting and sound. While the performance hall will be used for main events, the black box theatre will be used for special events, practice performances, banquets and more. The choir room is a state-of-the-art classroom that is acoustically sound, fit for recording.

The Music Library houses 7,800 scores and miniature scores, 8,600 recordings and CDs, and 1,800 reference and method books.

The department owns 3 pipe organs; 1 electronic organ; 3 concert grand pianos; a harpsichord; many practice pianos with both upright and grand pianos; numerous orchestral and band instruments; a collection of Renaissance and Baroque instruments; a collection of non-western instruments; and a Roland piano lab, with 14 electronic keyboards. The department also has acquired a fully-equipped state-of-the-art computer lab, Macintosh computers, and Kurzweill, Yamaha, and Korg synthesizers.

Current construction: The Performing Arts Center continues to take shape with much of the mason work complete on the exterior and the focus now being on mechanical and electrical within the facility.

What's next:

  • Exterior work to complete parking, curbs and walkways
  • Completion of interior work

Expected completion date: January 2015
