Jorgenson Center



The concert hall at the University of Connecticut's main campus in Storrs is the Jorgenson Center.  It was empty when I sneaked in to stand on the stage.

A splendid Concert Hall Jack ... SO pleased you snuck in early to get this birds-eye capture. Love those classy chairs.

i'm applauding your soliloquy from way, way in the back.

Fabulous perspective! Great shot, Jack.

A great photo of a magnificent place!

The color of the chairs is nice. :)
Did you make a speech?

Lowell said...

It's a beautiful hall. And I always thought you were a "ham," but Hamlet? Sheesh!

I suspect it was a better choice to try out a few lines of Shakespeare than to break into song.

Sharon said...

i bet you could be heard from way in the back!

Sylvia K said...

I was way in the back, too, and wasn't surprised at all by your eloquent Shakespeare performance, Jack!!

Did you have a 'soapbox' with you on stage? It is an election year.

What a great and well looking hall!

Randy said...

Laughing a Lowell's comment. Nice shot.

The only way I would get up on that stage would be if the hall was empty like that! Looks like a fantastic venue though. I like all the balcony seating.

Big. I trust the acoustics are good. Did you try them? :-)

Michelle said...

What a view from the stage! Imagine if the venue had been full of people!

EG CameraGirl said...

Looks like the seats are comfortable. Did everyone in the audience clap wildly when you stepped onto the stage?

Bob Crowe said...

Very cool design and warm feeling but what's with all the rows of folding chairs in front? It that sometimes used as performance space?

A warm and inviting space.

Can you imagine having to perform in front of so many people..I'd freeze up for sure, well maybe not I do go on a bit haha! Have you seen any performances here Jack.

Cathy Hudspeth said...

How much fun to have the stage all to yourself! Great shot!

"Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more."

I wonder why the seats in the rear are such a drab color compared with the brighter seats in front?

Fantastic facility. Great shot.

Darryl and Ruth :)

Gosh!
Some people stand in front of so many people again and again....
A good thing that it very often is dark...

Nice place, and with a Scandinavian name??

Nice emptiness.
