Auditorium Project
Join Our EMail List Granparent AppealHome












The Haldane School Foundation has embarked upon our largest funding endeavor to date – the upgrade of the school auditorium. The HSF Board of Trustees has unanimously approved the Foundation’s support of this important project that will bring the Arts and Music Curriculum to a new level and further improve the educational experience of all Haldane children!

The Haldane School Auditorium is an asset to the community and an integral part of the school facilities for art, music and performance. It is a multi-purpose facility that is used as a theater and concert hall, gymnasium, student assembly hall, testing center and space for community gatherings. It is also a teaching facility that plays a vital role in the school’s Arts curriculum. The school auditorium is where the Haldane students learn how to be members of an audience, how to give presentations, and, for many students, is one of the first and perhaps only places that they will perform for an audience.

The Haldane School Auditorium has not seen a comprehensive upgrade in 76 years and remains largely unchanged since the building was constructed in 1936. The vast majority of technical systems in the auditorium are outdated and inadequate by current standards.


The Auditorium Upgrade Plan encompasses a number of critical improvements that are necessary to bring the space to current standards and make it more suitable to function at the highest levels:

  • Lighting
  • Sound amplification
  • Acoustics
  • Video
  • Storage
  • Stage presentation

1/15/14 Update:

Lighting and sound are now finished, and wiring is nearly cleaned up.
The only piece of the project open is the acoustic panels,
which are currently in process.

Total projected cost: $130,034

Funds raised: $17,800 (as of January 2014)
