Project Summary Project Information

For an updated project description, click on the following link for the Project Readiness Package.

Background:

Rochester NY is nationally recognized for its musical talent and bringing the music community together. Artists gather from all over the country to perform in Rochester. The Rochester Music Hall of Fame recognizes those with ties to Rochester whose talents, efforts, perseverance and creativity have contributed to the creation of musical excellence.

Purpose:

The Rochester Music Hall of Fame has recently acquired a small venue which is in need of a stage for performances. The venue will also house various events that do not need a stage. A Murphy Stage is a transformable stage that can be stowed in a vertical position against a wall to maximize usable floor space when the stage is not needed. A concept can be shown at the following link: Murphy Stage Video.

Inspiration:

The inspiration for this project came from the Murphy Bed, a bed which can fold into an upright position to maximize floor space when the bed is not being used. It is popular in small apartments and small bedrooms where floor space is limited.
