Esther Eastman Music Center and Walker Auditorium

Esther Eastman Music Center and Walker Auditorium
Hotchkiss School, Lakeville, CT
Acoustics, Sound and Video Systems

Project Description

The spacious, glass-walled, 640-seat music pavilion commands panoramic views of nearby hills and lakes. The pavilion seating—configured in the round with parterre and upper-level balconies surrounding a flat-floor orchestra—takes its design cues from Boston Symphony Hall. The pavilion’s one-inch-thick glass walls open to an outdoor terrace for community concerts during the summer. The pavilion itself will have adjustable acoustics to support a wide range of musical performances as well as a variety of other school functions. The grand lobby of the new Music Arts Center serves to unite physically the theater arts and the fine arts at Hotchkiss School, and will establish the arts in general as integral to the daily lives of students. The new center also houses classrooms, practice rooms, ensemble rooms, faculty offices, a technology center, a radio station, green rooms, an expansion of the adjacent Walker Auditorium stage, and several student lounges.
