Denfeld Auditorium Grand Reopening to feature
Arrowhead Chorale and Denfeld choirs
News Release

After 10 months of extensive restoration and structural remodeling, the 1,900-seat Denfeld High School Auditorium is ready for its grand reopening.

The Denfeld Choral Music Department and Arrowhead Chorale, in collaboration with the Denfeld Alumni Association and Denfeld Music Boosters, are inviting the city to a grand reopening concert on Saturday, March 17, at 7:30 p.m.

The show, titled “On the Silver Screen,” will feature the Arrowhead Chorale, conducted by Dr. Stanley R. Wold, along with the Denfeld Concert Choir and Solid Gold show choir, directed by Mark Overland, performing an evening of music from classic films.

The Chorale will perform favorites such as “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” from The Wizard of Oz, “It’s a Grand Night for Singing” from State Fair, “Candy Man” from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and “Just Can’t Wait to be
King” from The Lion King.

The Denfeld Auditorium has entertained and enchanted generations of Duluthians since it opened in 1926. The early “nickel” organ concerts showcased such big name entertainers as Johnny Mathis and Liberace. Other performers that have graced the stage include Nat King Cole, Louis Armstrong and Johnny Cash.

The grand reopening concert will be the first public performance in the fully renovated auditorium. Although it has been open for use since the school’s holiday concert in December, final restorations were not complete until now.

Following the concert, the Denfeld Alumni Association will host a reception with refreshments to celebrate the occasion.

Tickets are $12, and available by calling Denfeld High School or the Arrowhead Chorale, and online at

By special arrangement, high school students will be admitted for free by presenting their student I.D. at the door.
