MINNEAPOLIS, MN (November 19, 2009) – It’s the world’s most important rock destination. The multipurpose Foster Theater at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum hosts everything from live performances by rock royalty to intimate interviews. And when the whole world is watching, there are no do-overs. That’s why they chose Vaddio to capture every history-making moment.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, Inc. is the nonprofit organization that exists to educate visitors, fans and scholars from around the world about the history and continuing significance of rock and roll music. It carries out this mission both through its operation of a world-class museum that collects, preserves, exhibits and interprets this art form and through its library and archives as well as its educational programs.
The Foster Theater
During the recently completed renovation of the 14-year-old theater on the Museum’s fourth floor, the wall fabrics, lights and seats weren’t the only components revamped. With a generous grant from Gregg and Madelyn Foster, the $1 million upgrade to the 4th-floor theater now includes a remote high-definition camera system in the design.
Events held in the Foster Theater include live concerts, educational programs, artist interviews, panel discussions and video screenings. Artists such as Little Richard, Aretha Franklin, Al Green and The Staple Singers have performed in the theater. Before her Grammy nomination Taylor Swift played in this theater to an intimate crowd of just 30 people, which now boasts three Vaddio WallVIEW HD-18 CCU high-definition camera systems to record and capture these historic moments.
