The J. B. Chambers Performing Arts Center is vast and elegant.
Student Henry Loh played the grand piano donated by the late opera star Eleanor Steber.
With 1200 seats and two galleries, this $10 million project was built with the performers and the audience in mind.
"The stage is huge," said Superintendent George Krelis. "We have it set up now with the orchestra shell on there. We have a very large set shop in the back of the facility that will allow our students to prepare everything they need for plays and other events. Musicians who come in can use that area to drop off their material and equipment."
Krelis says the opening was delayed numerous times last year due to the wettest spring in 25 years.
But he says it was done meticulously well by 100 construction tradesmen with 100 miles of wiring and 1,000 yards of concrete.
He says it was worth the wait.
They will host a public open house Monday from 4 - 7 p.m.
