Pfeiffer Receives a Second 2017 USITT Merit Award for Mount Royal University’s Taylor Centre for the Performing Arts

November 8, 2016
Our project at Mount Royal University, the Taylor Centre for the Performing Arts, has also been recognized with a 2017 Merit Award by the United States Institute of Theatre Technology (USITT), along with the Musco Center for the Performing Arts at Chapman University. The Taylor Centre’s 800-seat Bella Concert Hall, featuring a wooden acoustic canopy in the shape of the Alberta rose, is ringed by teaching studios, practice rooms, classrooms, and a large rehearsal/recital space, paneled in perforated wood with an origami-inspired ceiling designed to reflect sound. The LEED Gold-certified building presents a dramatic new front door at the East Gate of the campus and has set a new standard for music instruction in Canada.
