The Colburn School is one of the top music conservatories in the country and a premiere performing arts school in Los Angeles. Students participate in recitals, showcases and concerts throughout the year in preparation for careers in the arts.
The campus expansion of 2007 connected an existing school facility with a new three hundred and twenty six thousand square foot, twelve-story high rise. Included in the addition are fifty new practice rooms, four classrooms, a two hundred seat concert hall, a four thousand square foot rehearsal hall, residential housing for more than a hundred students and a cafe that is open to the public.
Sonitus designed an audio visual infrastructure and systems to interconnect the performing spaces with existing and new AV systems to support the more than two hundred annual events. The campus’ two concert halls, three recital rooms, and instructional, technical and mastering labs, realize audio and video connectivity through fiber and CAT6 wiring. Sonitus continues to provide consultation with the school helping to respond to the high demands of combining instruction and performance.
