Callaway Auditorium

THE LSO IS THE
SYMPHONY IN RESIDENCE AT LAGRANGE COLLEGE

In 2005, with the Auditorium’s transformation from a “gym with a stage” to a state-of-the-art concert hall, LaGrange College and the surrounding community were generously provided with a superb music performance facility. Funded jointly by Callaway Foundation, Inc., and LaGrange College, the $5.5 million renovation called for an almost complete internal makeover and a new roof. Yet the most dramatic improvement was the superior sound quality the Auditorium now delivers.
