With some fanfare and a ribbon-cutting, Solano Community College leaders on Wednesday will open its newly refurbished Performing Arts Building.
The event begins at 5 p.m. on the main Fairfield campus, 4000 Suisun Valley Road.
The newly renovated facility, also known as Building 1200, will house the theater arts and music programs, as well as instructional classrooms, and student support space.
More than 28,000 square feet of existing space was renovated to make the building a place of enhanced learning for students, college officials noted in a press release.
“What is great about this particular project is the new theater space,” said Celia Esposito-Noy, the school president-superintendent. “Not only will students have a beautiful location in which to perform, but the college now has a space to highlight our outstanding theater, music, and dance productions as well as other academic programs.”
