The Conrad Opens


The Conrad Prebys Performing Arts Center is officially open!  After two years of construction, The Conrad celebrated its grand opening in April 2019 with an all-star gala concert featuring nearly a dozen artists.

JWDA is the Architect of Record and collaborated with Cambridge, MA based Epstein Joslin Architects on the design and construction of The Conrad.  The performing arts center is the new permanent home for La Jolla Music Society and includes a 500-seat concert hall, a 140-seat cabaret/multipurpose space, rehearsal and dressing rooms, kitchen and café, staff offices, support spaces, and an open courtyard which will host both public and private events.

Funded entirely by private donations, the $82 million development is located at 7600 Fay Avenue in La Jolla, between Pearl Avenue and Kline Street.
