VBC Concert Hall getting $5M makeover

Through a generous private donation, the Von Braun Center Concert Hall is getting a much-needed makeover. The renovation will include new seating, "luxury suites", a new sound system, a renovated lobby, and a new entrance (shown above). It is being paid for through a $3 million donation from Linda Smith (widow of Mark Smith, the founder of Adtran, which the renovated hall will be named after) and public VBC and TIF district funds. Work is expected to begin in March and end sometime in 2010. This is (hopefully) just the beginning of the VBC renovations, as much of the center is now over 30 years old.
