Queen's set to begin construction of performing arts centre this spring

February 4, 2011

With the $63-million capital funding now in place, construction is scheduled to start this spring on Queen's University's Isabel Bader Centre for the Performing Arts. The complex, slated to open in fall 2013, will feature an acoustically-superior concert hall, a "black box" theatre, a screening room, and rehearsal space. The City of Kingston is refurbishing the nearby JT Tett Creativity Centre for local artists and arts groups. A report expected by summer will propose a sustainable model for a cultural arts facilities plan for both the university and the municipality. Queen's News Centre
