The Cyn­thia Woods Mitchell Pav­il­ion Opens Brand New Wood­for­est Bank Club

Public News (Houston) - - NEWS -

The Wood­lands, Texas – On Tues­day, Au­gust 8, lead­ers from The Cyn­thia Woods Mitchell Pav­il­ion of­fi­cially opened the beau­ti­ful new Wood­for­est Bank Club, a nearly 15,000 square foot fa­cil­ity re­served for The Pav­il­ion’s sea­son ticket and box seat hold­ers dur­ing the con­cert and per­form­ing arts sea­son.

Late last year, The Pav­il­ion Board of Di­rec­tors unan­i­mously ap­proved the ma­jor con­struc­tion project to re­place the orig­i­nal Club fa­cil­ity. The new build­ing, which is now open for the re­main­ing sea­son, boasts two floors of ex­pan­sive seat­ing, three new bars, a cater­ing kitchen and ex­panded re­strooms. The re­laxed out­door pa­tio up­stairs of­fers a 260-de­gree view of the North Plaza and is per­fect for soak­ing up the con­cert at­mos­phere with The Pav­il­ion’s peaks and hill as the back­drop.

Guests who at­tended the grand open­ing were of­fered com­pli­men­tary menu sam­pling and all pro­ceeds from the cash bar ben­e­fit­ted The Pav­il­ion’s fine arts schol­ar­ship pro­gram. Dur­ing the event, guests were able to tour the Club which of­fers a unique snap­shot of The Pav­il­ion’s his­tory. The mem­o­ra­bilia wall show­cases pho­to­graphs, signed gui­tars and con­cert posters of var­i­ous artists who have per­formed on The Pav­il­ion Main Stage since its in­cep­tion in 1990. All pho­tos were cap­tured by The Pav­il­ion’s res­i­dent pho­tog­ra­pher, Ted Wash­ing­ton.

As guests en­tered the new fa­cil­ity, they were treated to the beau­ti­ful or­ches­tral sounds of a lo­cal string trio made up of Katie Osani, vi­o­lin­ist; Alex O’Steen, vi­o­lin­ist; and Amy San­ders; cel­loist. The trio formed sev­eral years ago dur­ing one of The Pav­il­ion’s ed­u­ca­tional out­reach pro­grams, Cham­ber­fest.

“We are truly ex­cited to have the op­por­tu­nity to of­fer this beau­ti­ful amenity to our sea­son ticket and box seat hold­ers,” says The Pav­il­ion Pres­i­dent and CEO, Jerry MacDon­ald. “This de­vel­op­ment rep­re­sents a piv­otal mo­ment in The Pav­il­ion’s his­tory as it was one of six projects com­pleted dur­ing Phase 2 con­struc­tion, a com­pre­hen­sive ven­ture which is val­ued at $11 mil­lion. The fact that we are debt free af­ter the build­ing of this beau­ti­ful fa­cil­ity is an in­cred­i­ble feat of which we are very proud.”

The Wood­for­est Bank Club is a year­round fa­cil­ity, so use is not lim­ited to The Pav­il­ion’s sea­son. Even though the Club is not avail­able for ren­tal dur­ing Pav­il­ion per­for­mances, it is avail­able for group meet­ings or pri­vate func­tions ev­ery other day of the year. The Wood­for­est Bank Club will be avail- able for pri­vate func­tions, based on avail­abil­ity.

Those who are in­ter­ested in en­joy­ing the ben­e­fits of be­ing a sea­son ticket or box seat holder in­clud­ing ac­cess to the Club, on-site park­ing and ded­i­cated cus­tomer ser­vice can con­tact JD Vil­laseñor at 281-210-1121.
