PLC Performing Arts Centre

Burwood

The Presbyterian Ladies College’s new Performing Arts Centre is a living program for the performance of music and drama; with the 550-seat Music Recital Auditorium at the heart of the building.

The Auditorium is used for a variety of musical and dramatic performances and school community functions, and features undulating timber-clad walls that are both visually striking and acoustically functional.

A generous lobby and multi-level atrium with a major interconnecting staircase are characterised by  daylight, creating a learning environment that is connected to the grounds of the College.

Conceived as a place to perform, rehearse, discuss, teach and learn, the centre is a vital element of the cultural life and identity of PLC.

Specialist music rehearsal spaces with 8-metre-high ceilings together with smaller studio spaces and classrooms will inspire state of the art teaching and purpose-built learning environments for a new generation of musicians and actors at PLC.
