This fall, our school was nominated and selected to receive a TV make-over of our David Greer Recital Hall and backyard by the hit NBC reality show George to the Rescue.
The work they did was beyond what we could have imagined. We are so excited to be able to provide an updated space for our students, faculty, and community to come together for hundreds of rehearsals, classes, and performances throughout the year.
The project, led by SilverLining Inc. completely transformed the Hall and the backyard space. They gathered some of the city’s best architects, acousticians, landscape designers and muralists for the project, all of whom donated their time and resources to provide a world-class concert hall for our community non-profit.
