This new performing arts facility functions as a "village" of ten interconnecting buildings that bring together the University’s Music, Theatre, and Dance departments. Major spaces include a 1,200-seat concert hall, 300-seat recital hall, 650-seat proscenium theatre and a 200-seat dance studio. The concert hall's lofty, gothic-scale ambience contrasts with the recital hall, lyric theatre and dance theatre, each of which offers an acoustical environment tailored to its primary use. A performing arts Library, two experimental theatres, 30 classrooms, 50 rehearsal and practice rooms, and 100 faculty studios and offices round out the facilities.
