Building The Soraya — From Construction to Curtain Call
Persevering in the face of challenges is part of our DNA — a two-decade quest for a site, a fundraising campaign interrupted by the Great Recession, and construction stalled by a state budget crisis. In the face of adversity, the Valley Performing Arts Center was born from tenacity. CSUN’s commitment was the game-changer, followed by support from County and State public leaders; Valley citizens and philanthropists joined the cause, and Younes and Soraya Nazarian secured a vision for the future.
As we approach our 10th anniversary on January 29th, take a side-by-side look at the building of The Soraya — from construction to curtain call. Designed by HGA Architects and Engineers with lead design architect Kara Hill.
Celebrate The Soraya's 10th Anniversary with a gift today.
