Important Information Regarding October 22nd Performance!

The CSI campus roadways will be under construction at the time of our October 22nd concert. The front of our concert hall, building 1P, will not be accessible by car. The usual parking lots for 1P should still be available.  For those performers and audience members with limited walking ability, it may be best to be dropped off at the backstage door beside the Concert Hall. The handicapped parking lot beside 1P should still be available, by going behind 1P and driving a short distance on the sidewalk. However, it is a rather long hike from there to the Concert Hall.  Please review the map of the CSI road closures to help you plan for your visit.
