Venues and Rehearsal Facilities

The Department of Music is located in Camino Hall and uses concert facilities in the adjacent Founders Hall.

Our concert facilities include the 600-seat Shiley Theatre featuring a 9' Baldwin concert grand piano, the 50-seat French Parlor featuring a Steinway model B concert grand piano and for the performance of sacred music, the magnificent Founders Chapel.

Our classroom facilities include a digital audio and electronic music studio equipped with:

  • Apple iMacs running Digital Performer
  • MAX/MSP and Finale software,
  • A keyboard practice room featuring a Mason & Hamlin grand piano and reproduction Flemish single-manual harpsichord in Baroque pitch.

Additionally, the music department has two new Wenger sound proof isolation rooms; one for percussion/gamelan ensembles and the other with virtual acoustic environment technology as shown in photos below.
