Concert at the Terrace to help kick off student center reopening

January 23, 2012

A new stage on the second floor of the Memorial Student Center will see its first action this week. Twin Cities acoustic-pop musician Pat Brown, formerly the lead singer of Sing it Loud, will perform at 8 p.m. Thursday at the Terrace.

The opening act will be Forever in the Clear. Admission is free for the Blue Devil Productions event.

The Terrace, with adjoining Fireside Café, is a new feature in the student center that reopened today after a yearlong $19 million renovation. The café is a second-floor restaurant that was remodeled to include a fixed stage area for performances and presentations.

The Terrace stage is one of four performance venues at the center, which used to have two, the Underground and the Great Hall. The Underground has been eliminated.

Also new is Huff’s Lounge, an open area on the first floor that can be transformed into a stage for special events, such as Open Mic night. A new outdoor amphitheater on the east side can be used for performances. The Great Hall was remodeled and includes a new dance floor.

The renovated center features increased lounge space, expanded entryways, more natural light, expanded dining options and new offices and meeting areas. A reopening celebration is planned in April.
