T. Furth Center for Performing Arts Open House

Furth - T. Furth Center for Performing Arts

500 W. Maumee
Angola, IN 46703

Trine's new T. Furth Center for Performing Arts will be open from 5 to 7 p.m., allowing curious residents a chance to check out the facility on a self-guided tour or to join docents on tours set for 5:15 and 6 p.m.

The free event is designed to give everyone who's interested a chance to see how the former First Christian Church, 500 W. Maumee St., has been transformed into the sparkling T. Furth Center. Just as when the church was being constructed in 1910-1911, the work has piqued the interest of residents and passersby who have expressed a desire to see the building. Trine has invested $7.8 in renovations and an addition to the T. Furth Center that was dedicated May 2.

During the open house, local musicians will provide entertainment and Bon Appetit Management Co. will offer refreshments.

The center will serve as the home of Trine's growing music program and accommodate its Drama Club. Designed to bring culture, excitement and opportunities to Angola and the region, the transformation allowed Trine to rescue the Greek Revival-style building, a historical gem. Generous donors supplied the funding to enable the university to complete the project.
