New Performing Arts Center

Wayland-Cohocton Central School District

► High School Auditorium Reconstruction & Expansion

Wayland-Cohocton CSD needed a solution to accomodate "standing-room only" crowds that had its high school auditorium bursting at the seams during student concerts and performances. The reconstruction and expansion of the existing auditorium resulted in a new, modernized Performing Arts Center.

Determined to find a way to celebrate the new space while COVID restrictions were still in place, the District created a one-of-a-kind celebration video to share with the entire Wayland-Cohocton community.
