In 1981, construction began on the 1,100 seat Festival Concert Hall. The Concert Hall is the focus of the Festival Hill campus and the site of nearly 900 concerts, many performed before the building included air-conditioning or even a roof. Today, the hall approaches completion with improvements such as concert support facilities (video recording, state of the art lighting equipment) planned for the near future. The acoustics are considered as phenomenal.
Completed in April 2007, it is one of the best in the country, acoustically speaking and strikingly beautiful.
