In fall 2006 the Segerstrom Center for the Arts, which was formally known as the Orange County Performing Arts Center added two additional venues, creating one of the finest and most advanced performing arts complexes in the United States. These include the 2,000-seat Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall and 500-seat Samueli Theater. Doug had an opportunity to photograph the building of the Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall and Samueli Theater from the ground breaking ceremony, to the spectacular opening night red carpet gala and concert. This book is a photographic journey through the creation of the Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall.
