Hoch Auditorium

Hoch Auditorium was a 5,500-seat multi-purpose arena on the same site.[1] It featured traditional Collegiate Gothic architecture on the exterior, with a full performance hall inside.[1] A basketball court could be placed parallel to the stage and temporary seating placed on the stage, behind the benches on the floor. The Auditorium was named for Edward W. Hoch, 17th Governor of Kansas, member of the Board of Regents, and University supporter.[1][2] It was home to the University of Kansas Jayhawks basketball teams until Allen Fieldhouse opened in 1955.[1]

In 1957, Andrew McKinley was the tenor soloist in the world premiere of Cecil Effinger's oratorio The Invisible Fire at Hoch Auditorium with the Kansas City Philharmonic under conductor Thor Johnson.[3]

In 1967, Hoch Auditorium became the site of a fatal accident when 15-year-old Lorraine Kelvin of Clayton, Missouri fell 64-70 feet from a catwalk while attending the University of Kansas Midwestern Music and Arts Camp.[4]

On June 15, 1991, Hoch Auditorium was struck by lightning.[1] The auditorium and stage area were completely destroyed;[1][5] only the limestone façade and lobby area were spared.[1][5] When reconstruction of the building was complete, the rear half of the building was named Budig Hall, for then KU Chancellor Gene Budig.[1] The original name on the façade was made plural to reflect the presence of multiple auditorium-style lecture halls within the building: Hoch Auditoria.[1]
