On Tuesday, November 26, Conwell-Egan Catholic High School officially unveiled the Grace Danaher Performing Arts Center at a special Dedication Ceremony, celebrating the close of the $1 million renovations to the auditorium space.
Over 250 guests were on hand to browse the new event space, enjoy a performance from the CEC Chamber Choir, and admire their seat plaques purchased as part of the Seat Dedication Campaign.
The new space will serve as home to the CEC Performing Arts program, as well as host school and community events.
Upgrades include new sound paneling to improve acoustics, as well as new stage flooring, curtains, and a rigging system. New flooring and wood paneling were also installed. New seating is designed to accommodate 800 people and fit ADA guidelines. In addition, the project upgraded the electrical systems including new lighting systems and controls, as well as a new sound system. New general area lighting, stage lighting, aisle lighting, and decorative fixtures was installed to improve illumination and aesthetics. During performances, new audio-visual and lighting systems, including a state-of-the-art projector, is controlled from a new custom AV control booth area.
