Prairie Recital Hall-Cedar Rapids, IA
In the fall of 2009 Norcostco provided the new lighting and dimming system for Prairie Recital Hall.  Situated next to the existing high school theatre, the 1000 seat recital hall was designed primarily for music, but has the technical capabilities to accommodate theatrical productions as well.  In the spring of 2011 Norcostco was enlisted to supplement their inventory with additional lighting fixtures and create and implement a lighting plot ideal for the variety of performances that the recital hall hosts.
