Concordia on Saturday dedicated the $17.5 million Borland Center for Music and Theater, bringing to an end a long construction process delayed by weather and shortages of workers and supplies. The new construction, attached to half of the old Music Building, has state-of-the-art acoustics and technology, along with lots of natural light. About 200 gathered for the dedication, with speakers including Jonathan Jank, CEO at the Seward County Chamber & Development Partnership.
