Ponca City Concert Hall

Ponca City Concert Hall

Ponca City, OK

This purpose-built music facility is a “one of a kind” musical arts venue for the Ponca City Public School system.  The project was part of a $37 million bond issue passed by Ponca City residents in 2015. The modified shoebox style venue seats 1,204 on three seating levels, with a permanent stage that can hold up to 130 musicians and up to 150 with combined choir and orchestra.

K2’s audiovisual design includes a permanent loudspeaker system designed specifically to the venue, large format projection system, flexible control positions in the house and in a dedicated control room, networked audio and video routing, and a portable audio/video recording system for orchestral, band and choral competition. We also conducted space planning of the venue, audiovisual and performance lighting system design, acoustic design, noise control from building services, and sound isolation.
