Concert Hall Considerations

If Wilmington does eventually get a new large-scale performance hall, it will likely look very different from the original plans. A consulting company hired last year to determine the feasibility of the project presented its final report last month and WHQR's Megan Williams sat down with the firm's president to hear what he learned...

Wilmington, NC, March 17 – Any new performance hall for the Wilmington area is still years in the future. But Webb Management Services' feasibility study does give the region some sense of what it would take to become a reality. While the push for the building started with a group of private citizens, the man who performed the study, Duncan Webb, says university involvement would be vital.

Duncan Webb is the president of Webb Management Services, which studied the feasibility of a performance hall in New Hanover County.

Support for local arts and cultural programming comes from WHQR members, and Landfall Foundation, an organization of residents who support projects enhancing health, education and the arts in New Hanover, Brunswick and Pender Counties.
