Traffic Advisory: Baldwin Concert Saturday

Historic building reopens to public for inaugural musical performance

Motorists traveling around East Campus may experience delays the evening of Sept. 14, as Duke's Department of Music celebrates the grand re-opening of Baldwin Auditorium with a musical performance.

The auditorium's inaugural gala concert will be held from 8 to 9 p.m. Saturday. Traffic is expected to be heaviest along West Markham Avenue and Brodie Gym Drive, where patrons will park in the Bivins and Pegram lots. Parking will also be made available in the Brown Lot off North Buchanan Boulevard and at the Asbury United Methodist Church at the corner of West Markham Avenue and Sedgefield Street.

Parking on campus for performances at Baldwin is $5 cash per vehicle.

This summer, Duke completed a two-year, $15 million makeover of the historic building. It's been redesigned with tunable acoustics, seating for more than 700 patrons and infrastructure improvements. Duke Performances will present more than 20 events this season in Baldwin, which will also become the home for Duke's symphony orchestra, wind symphony, chorale and jazz ensemble.
