Music academy is architect’s finale

From the Associated Press

The Pennsylvania Academy of Music broke ground this week on the last project designed by architect Philip Johnson, a $21-million facility that will anchor a burgeoning downtown arts corridor in Lancaster, Pa.

The four-story glass-and-granite building, slated to open in two years, was designed by Johnson and Alan Ritchie.

Guns N’ Roses: A Quick Takes item in Saturday’s Calendar said the reunited Guns N’ Roses would be performing in Devore on Sept. 23. Only one member of the original group is still with that band.

A spokeswoman for Philip Johnson Alan Ritchie Architects said that the academy is the last project to be built that was designed by Johnson. He died in January 2005.

Located near Lancaster’s Fulton Opera House and art galleries, the new complex will include a 367-seat recital hall.




Pop booking: The reunited Guns N’ Roses has been tapped to headline KROQ’s Inland Invasion show Sept. 23 at Hyundai Pavilion in Devore, making it the group’s first Southland concert appearance in nearly 15 years.
