Members of the design and construction team gathered last night, February 15th, to celebrate the completion of the newly renovated Hill Hall at UNC Chapel Hill. Originally built in 1907, the building will turn 100 this year.
Renovations included the installation of a climate control system, state-of-the-art acoustics, a new stage, and equipment and piano lift. Additionally, the two-story rotunda was renovated to better accommodate receptions, intimate performances, and gathering space for the department. The backstage area includes updated dressing rooms and storage, new lighting, and updated administrative and teaching spaces.
“What was once a tired, dysfunctional building – which we still loved – is now a source of pride and inspiration for the campus,” – Louise Toppin, Music Department Chair
