Room 1131 seats 44 in fixed theatre seats with both fluorescent and adjustable level lighting. There is a 4'x16' chalkboard, a small grand piano and audio playback equipment.
Rooms 1401, 1402, 1403, and 1404 seat 30 in movable desk/chairs. The flat wooden floor in these rooms allows a variety of rehearsal configurations. These classrooms accommodate chamber music coachings, classes, lectures and receptions.
Room 1133 seats 66 in fixed theatre seats. An acoustically contoured ceiling, theatrical lighting, and a stage wall with adjustable absorption make it well-suited for recitals, as does its warm color scheme and wood accents reminiscent of the larger performance halls. A complete audio playback and video projection system support larger classes and lectures. Finale software and a MIDI keyboard allow for real-time demonstration in classes.
A new color scheme and wall sconces recall our other performance spaces, and a generous use of wood adds warmth and acoustical reflection. A totally new system allows theatrical-style lighting for recitals and provides brighter, energy-efficient overhead lighting for classes. A redesign of the entire platform area includes a new, acoustically contoured "shell" ceiling, a wood stage wall with an acoustically transparent scrim to cover the chalkboard for concerts, a motorized projection screen, a lighted chalkboard, and a newly refinished hardwood floor. A new wood floor replaces the old gray carpet in the seating area and makes the room sound much more live. The final touch is a set of wood-finished acoustical diffuser panels on the back wall.
Room 1705 is a conference room with a large table and seating for twelve. All classrooms have a small grand piano, chalkboards, and audio playback equipment.
