Remember Baldwin Auditorium, the biggest high school auditorium in the Triangle? Duke put $15 million into its renovation, and now it's gorgeous and acoustically perfect. Its warm wooden stage is the color of baked bread, beneath a wavelike stage ceiling of grooved panels, vertiginously high and slotted for stage light to come through. All of this remarkable wood came from a single, gigantic anigre tree in South Africa, milled to a 1/16-inch-thick veneer. Duke offers an opening-night musical feast with a chamber orchestra of faculty and students from the Duke University Department of Music. The Ciompi Quartet, John Brown, Randall Love and Rebecca Troxler present an all-American program featuring Aaron Copland's "Appalachian Spring" and Samuel Barber's "Knoxville, Summer of 1915," with Duke alumnus Jason McStoots guesting on tenor. The sound in this room will awe you.
