nlowery_hi.jpgBedford, IN – November 2008 … For the students, faculty, administrators, and others who routinely found themselves onstage before the student body and members of the local community at the Bedford North Lawrence Performing Arts Center, the quality of the facility’s sound reinforcement system was a sore subject.

Peavey® Versarray™ 212 Flies at New Levitt Pavilion

Levitt Pavilion, Arlington, TXFor as long as entrepreneur and philanthropist Mortimer Levitt could remember, music was his passion.

The impressions those summer nights in New York made stayed with him throughout his life.

In 1963, he created the Mortimer Levitt Foundation to provide communities with venues where everyone could experience the arts under the stars. He established the first Levitt Pavilion for the Performing Arts in Westport, Conn., in 1974, with this goal in mind. more
