“Indian Hill Music is going big—or, rather, fortississimo—in Groton,” writes Chris Lisinski in Saturday’s (9/24) Fitchburg Sentinel and Enterprise (Mass.). “The organization recently unveiled plans to build a massive school and performance center on the former J. Geils property that it purchased last year. The proposal … would be a substantial growth for Indian Hill: 120,500 square feet, indoor and outdoor seating for up to 2,300 people, and more than 670 parking spaces. Susan Randazzo, executive director of Indian Hill, said the new center will allow the school to break free from some of its space constraints while also serving as a ‘destination’ for music fans…. Indian Hill purchased the property last summer with plans to relocate its headquarters from Littleton. Randazzo estimated the bulk of construction, if approved to begin in spring 2017, would be completed within ‘three to four years.’ … Indian Hill would construct a two-story building that includes classrooms for music lessons, a 300-seat recital room and a 1,000-seat performance center.” Littleton and Groton, Massachusetts are located 40 miles northwest of Boston. The Orchestra of Indian Hill, in its 42th season, performs a six-concert series at Littleton High School, led by Artistic Director Bruce Hangen.
