The concert hall will support opera and musical theatre for the university as well as a performing arts venue for the greater community. The two-tiered, 400-plus seat venue, equipped with an orchestra pit, features state-of-the art sound and lighting equipment, built-in recording capabilities and a wooden acoustic shell that can be modified to suit performance needs.
