Orange County Performing Art Center Tickets Information
 
     
 

The roots of the Orange County Performing Arts Center reach back more than 45 years, when the newly formed Orange County Philharmonic Society (later renamed the Philharmonic Society of Orange County) identified a pressing need for a versatile concert facility in Orange County. However, the first local group specifically intended to facilitate the building of a major cultural center in the heart of the community wasn't formed until 1969. That group, the Newport Harbor Foundation, conducted a feasibility study, which found that Newport Beach would not be an ideal location for the new center. Following closely on the heels of this development, a Santa Ana-based group with the same goal was formed in 1972. The Board of Directors of this organization determined that any successful performing arts center would have to be built on site near a confluence of freeways. In order for any project of this sort to be financially feasible, the valuable land on which the center stood would have to be donated. The group considered approximately 19 sites over a period of six years. Of these different sites, three finalists made the short list for serious consideration; eventually, even these were rejected for a range of reasons.

 
 
 


 


Orange County Performing art center History and Information

 

On May 15, 1979, the Board of Directors of the performing arts center accepted the Segerstrom family's generous offer of five acres of land for the proposed facility. The following week, at a press conference to announce the donation, the Segerstrom family took the lead in funding the new project by announcing an additional $1 million cash pledge commitment for the design and construction of the new hall. Shortly thereafter, the site was evaluated, market research studies were conducted and fundraising strategies were explored. When all the studies were completed and the results deemed positive, the Board of Directors chose the architectural firm, The Blurock Partnership of Newport Beach, California, working in conjunction with Caudill Rowlett Scott of Houston, Texas, to consult on and design the project. Charles Lawrence of CRS was designated lead architect, and the team began a series of consultations with lighting, acoustics and automated systems specialists. A consortium of acoustical consultants had previously been interviewed. The Board chose to retain the services of the distinguished acoustic design expert Dr. A. Harold Marshall of New Zealand, one of the leading figures in the field. Marshall was the main member of a consortium called Joint Venture Acoustical Consultants, which also included Jerald Hyde of St. Helena, California and Dennis Paoletti of San Francisco. At the direction of the Board, the team of acousticians constructed a one-tenth scale model of the asymmetrical auditorium to first try the sound quality of the design. At the same time plans were being drawn for The Center's physical construction, the facility's financial structure was being put in place. The Guilds system, made up of 33 individual chapters throughout the county set up under the direction of Georgia Spooner in 1978, continued to raise operational funds. A major fundraising program led by the Trustees of the Board of Directors with the professional consultation and guidance of Gary Phillips and Associates was developed and initiated in 1980. Henry T. Segerstrom was named Chairman of the Trustees, a special group of eleven members of the Board of Directors charged with raising cash gifts for the Building Fund and deferred gifts for the Endowment Fund. The Center named Len Bedsow as its first Executive Director, and other key personnel necessary for the development and construction phases were hired.Purchase Orange County Performing art center Tickets – we have Orange County Performing art center Tickets for cheap prices.
