Audio Upgrade for the Performing Arts Center at Arcadia High School

Stage Directions

The Arcadia Performing Arts Center at Arcadia (California) High School was envisioned at a level that many regional and municipal performing arts center venues could only dream of. The 1,150-seat state-of-the-art Performing Arts Center was opened in 2012, and since then, revenue generated from ticket sales and other donations benefit the Performing Arts Center, as well as art education and art programming for the community. What the venue didn’t have, however, was a sound system that matched its artistic, aesthetic and theatrical achievements. Now, it does: as of January, the venue has installed a state-of-the-art sound system from Bose Professional.
