Cannon Center for the Performing Arts

The Cannon Center for the Performing Arts at the Cook Convention Center houses a 2,100-seat theatre that is the home of the Memphis Symphony Orchestra. The Center also hosts a wide range of events, including ballet, opera, pop and jazz concerts; touring theatrical productions; childrens’ theatre, and general sessions for conferees attending the Memphis Cook Convention Center.

Renovations of restrooms, elevators, and meeting rooms in the existing building and the addition of an 80,000-pound truck lift to aid in load-ins for Broadway tours, were part of the project.
