The College of the Holy Cross welcomed members of the campus and local communities to the Prior Performing Arts Center Community Day on Saturday, Sept. 24, giving visitors their first look inside the new $110 million academic building and performance venue.
Faculty, staff, students, alumni and Worcester residents attended the open house-style event, which featured music, dance and theater open rehearsals and performances, as well as the Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Art Gallery’s inaugural exhibition, “Afterimage: Visual Arts Faculty 2022.”
Visitors got a first-hand look at all three floors of the 84,000 square-foot building, from production spaces and rehearsal rooms to the 400-seat Luth Concert Hall. The building opened to classes at the beginning of the academic year.
