Baldwin Renovations Nearing the Finish Line

East Campus building to reopen for concerts in mid-September


Baldwin Auditorium is nearing the completion of its two-year, $15 million makeover. Scheduled to reopen in August, the historic domed landmark on Duke's East Campus has been redesigned with tunable acoustics, seating for more than 700 patrons and infrastructure improvements.

Duke Performances will present more than 20 events next season in Baldwin, which will also become the home for Duke's symphony orchestra, wind symphony, chorale and jazz ensemble.

Baldwin Auditorium will open for the fall season Saturday, Sept. 14, when the Department of Music will present a faculty gala chamber music concert in celebration of the opening of the renovated hall.
