Sound for U of Alabama’s Historic Foster Auditorium

University of Alabama Foster Auditorium

Tuscaloosa, AL – For many, the University of Alabama’s Foster Auditorium is remembered as a “ground zero” for the civil rights movement of the early 1960s. It was on June 11, 1963 in front of these doors that then-Governor George Wallace made his infamous Stand in the Schoolhouse Door, attempting to resist integration by blocking two black students from enrolling in the University.

Built in 1939, the hall was home to UA’s basketball teams in the 1970s and 1980s, as well as regularly hosting graduations, lectures, concerts and other large gatherings. The building is named for Autherine Lucy Foster, the first black student to be accepted and enrolled at UA.

With the opening of the neighboring Coliseum, the building eventually lost its standing as the campus’ largest indoor structure, and in recent years had fallen into disrepair. Recently, Foster Auditorium underwent a major renovation, reopening as home to more

Bemidji Retional Events Center

Bemidji, Minnesota, a city of about 14,000 people, is known as the home of Paul Bunyan and Babe, his BlueOx, as well as the birthplace of actress Jane Russell.

Bemidji has been dubbed the curling capital of the US, and Bemidji natives have represented in the last two Winter Olympic Games. Not surprisingly, ice hockey is also held in high regard, so it’s hardly surprising that the city recently invested in a state-of-the-art event center.

Wagner College Field

Staten Island, NY – Founded in Rochester in 1883, Wagner College moved to their current location here in 1918. Since then, the original 38-acre campus has grown to an idyllic 105 acres overlooking New York Harbor and the surrounding city.

The school’s athletics department boasts several NCAA teams, with the Seahawks football team among the most prestigious in the Northeast Conference. The team’s home field recently underwent a modern renovation, including a new sound system installed by Farmingdale-based Advance Sound. Advance Sound’s Thomas De Pace explains the challenges in creating the system design.

PPL Park, Chester, PA

Chester, PA – If you want to see a perfect example of a community coming together to redevelop and reclaim itself, look no further than the Chester Waterfront.

Philadelphia, PA – Opened in 1895, the University of Pennsylvania’s Franklin Field has been designated by the NCAA as the oldest stadium still operating for football games.
