The Centre is a multi-purpose venue that plays host to musical groups, theatrical productions, television specials, corporate and private events, and conventions.

Designed in a classical style, the venue seats over 2,300. Recently, the Centre played host to a special NEXO presentation by FILO Pro Audio of Austin, Texas.

Celebrating the 40th anniversary of arguably the most significant musical event in history, Warner Home Video has released “Woodstock: 40th Anniversary—Ultimate Collector’s Edition? on Blu-Ray disc. The release features a re-mastered director’s cut of the original film, including many previously unreleased performances. Legendary producer/engineer Eddie Kramer, who engineered the original recordings that captured the 1969 event, was called by Warner to mix this wealth of previously material. For the project, Kramer relied on a 5.1 JBL LSR6300 studio monitor system to bring the tracks to life in Capitol Records Studio C control room.
