Chapman University’s elegant Musco Center for the Arts was named “best campus venue” in the 2017 Best of Orange County, an annual list of the region’s top spots as chosen by readers of The Orange County Register.

The award noted Musco Center’s acoustic design, created by the renowned Yasuhisa Toyota, for its “world-class sound capabilities.”

The city Chapman calls home won reader affection, too. The City of Orange’s downtown area surrounding Orange Plaza was voted “best downtown.”

The annual awards, now in their 24th year, were presented at a Sept. 20 gala at the City National Grove of Anaheim. Read more at The Orange County Register.
