A fundamental part of a liberal arts institution such as Lipscomb University is a vital music program. A renovation of Collins Alumni Auditorium, originally built in the 1940s as part of the Lipscomb Expansion Plan provides Lipscomb students with state-of-the-art facilities for music studies and performances. Collins Alumni Auditorium has been transformed into a premier performance hall that seats 853 and is the performance venue for Lipscomb’s musical ensembles and theatrical and stage productions. The Collins Auditorium renovation was a complete gut and remodel project including asbestos abatement. We added a 15 foot stage extension with new wood flooring, wood trim and paneling, acoustical panels, new dimming system infrastructure, upgraded lighting, mecho shades, additional stage lighting portals, new stage curtain, upgraded stage curtain track system, new seating and an additional Audio Visual Booth. The flooring is a stained concrete with carpet along the aisles and entrances.
