Clovis North Education Center
The Paul Shaghoian Concert Hall and the Dan Pessano Black Box Theater are located at the Clovis (CA) North Education Center campus. The facilities have been constructed to fulfill the Clovis Unified School District’s vision of providing outstanding facilities for music, drama and musical theater for all performance groups within the District. The 740-seat concert hall will provide the District with a dedicated facility for music performance, with additional features supporting dance productions. The Dan Pessano Black Box Theater provides the District a space for smaller, more informal or experimental performances. In addition to general design assistance and theatrical systems, L&B has primary design responsibility for a large adjustable acoustical canopy over stage.
