This facility accommodates concerts/productions from community groups, broadway shows, and other professional performance entities, such as the New York Philharmonic that performed for the gala opening weekend, in addition to showcasing performances from the universityu2019s music ensembles and theatre/dance department. The Performance Hall is an 1,100-seat proscenium theatre style venue complete with a multi-configuration stage shell and motorized sound-absorbing drapery to best suit its acoustical characteristics to the performance type. The more intimate Recital Hall with 220 seats also has extensive room volume to balance room reverberation and loudness in tandem with motorized sound-absorbing drapery.nnAudio systems in the Performance Hall and Recital Hall accurately reproduce high-fidelity, full-spectrum audio and focus sound on audience seating areas. The Performance Hall has a sophisticated immersive video system to display high resolution video presentations in addition to image magnification and art on the stage surround. Broadcast systems allow content to be delivered to the large LED display and surround sound audio system at the Outdoor Plaza.nnKirkegaard provided design consulting for room acoustics, sound isolation, building services noise/vibration control, and AV systems from initial programming through design and construction completion.
