After more than a decade of planning, the Center for the Performing Arts is becoming a reality in Carmel, Indiana. Yesterday, the name of this major performance facility was officially announced as The Palladium. Designed to accommodate a variety of musical and theatrical performances, the Palladium will be a unique asset to all of Central Indiana. When construction has completed, the facility will include four state-of-the-art performing arts venues: a 1,600-seat concert hall, a 500-seat proscenium theater, a 200-seat studio theater and an outdoor amphitheater. It will also serve as an education center and museum for the Michael Feinstein Foundation, housing the rare memorabilia and manuscripts of The Great American Songbook Collection. One of our primary goals is for the concert hall to have the highest-quality acoustics, says Executive Director Steven Libman. When completed, The Palladium will rank among the world's greatest music venues, rivaling those in Vienna, Amsterdam, Boston and New York City.mThe grand opening of this concert hall is set for January 29, 2011.
