The Donald and Maureen Green Music Center at Sonoma State University features the 1,400-seat Weill Concert Hall with a rear door that opens to the lawn outside providing excellent sound and spectacular views to an additional 3,000 people. This indoor/outdoor arrangement makes music accessible to everyone, including young children. The Hall is home to the Santa Rosa Orchestra and accommodates a wide range of performances from jazz to opera and comedy. This world class hall also is a giant classroom serving music students, faculty and the community. The Center includes a full complement of music rehearsal, ensemble, practice spaces as well as seminar rooms and faculty offices to support the day-to-day functions of the Music Department. The yet to be completed Schroeder Recital Hall will be a space well-suited for choral music, and a large scale amphitheater is planned to round out the impressive complex. Kirkegaard Associates provided room acoustics, noise & vibration control and audio/video systems consulting services for the Green Music Center.
