Ribbon-cutting and Open House

Hancher Auditorium — Friday, Sept. 9 at 3 p.m. — Free

This Friday, a six-year wait comes to an end as the Hancher Auditorium reopens to the delight of eastern Iowans with a ribbon-cutting ceremony this Friday, Sept. 9 at 3 p.m. Following the ceremony, there will be an open house and viewing of the University’s $176 million LEED gold certified auditorium and performance building.

For those who cannot make Friday’s historic event, Hancher will be open to the public for an additional open house on Sunday, Sept. 11 from 2-5 p.m. The Hancher Auditorium box office will be open during both events.

Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band will be performing a free concert at Hancher the following week, Friday Sept. 16 at 7:30
