TOUR: Howard L. Schrott Center for the Arts
THURSDAY, DECEMBER 4th at 7:00 PM
LOCATION: Howard L. Schrott Center for the Arts at Butler University
DIRECTIONS: The Schrott Center is located on the Butler University campus at the corner of W. 46th Street & Sunset Avenue. It’s Bldg. 28 on this map: http://www.butler.edu/campus-map/ and here is a link to Google Maps: https://goo.gl/maps/DGHWI.
Parking will be available in the lot immediately behind the Schrott Center (off Sunset Ave.). There’s a lot of construction in the area – we will send out a reminder several days before in the event of any changes in road access or parking.
Our host and resident technical guru will be Dennis Long, Production Manager for the facility. Dennis’ background includes years of experience in a theatrical performance facilities as well as a strong electronic engineering background in television and related areas.
Schrott Center was planned and designed to be primarily a classical performance hall (Clowes Hall is now accommodating many road shows). We’ll take a tour throughout the facility, including access, HVAC, theatrical/performance support areas and various systems – lighting, sound, video, etc.
David Wright from Wright Consulting Associates is able to join us for a brief discussion of the acoustical aspects of the performance hall. Wright Consulting Associates Inc. was hired by Butler University for electro-acoustics consulting. WCA Inc. worked with Bonner & Associates from Texas for sound system design to integrate the architect’s variable acoustics approach for the room. David will review room modeling, variable acoustics, room diffusion and how the sound system reacts to the acoustical design.
