Friends School of Baltimore, Visual and Performing Arts Building

The main theatre at the Friends School of Baltimore is central to the community life of the school, hosting the weekly Collection (student/staff convocation) and crowded calendar of rehearsals, theatrical shows, and concerts. After a feasibility study for a new performing arts building pointed instead to reuse of the theatre, plans were developed to rake the floor, raise the ceiling and open thru proscenium to enlarge the acoustic volume, and add a control room, variable acoustics, and a major expansion of the audio and video systems, all within the walls of the existing building.
