Rubendall Recital Hall

Rubendall Recital Hall after 2011 renovation according to acoustic design by the Kirkegaard Associates and architectural design by Rhoads Siegel Architects, Inc.

Named after former College president Howard “Bud” Rubendall, the primary performance venue for our Department seats 233 in raked seating that guarantees every guest an excellent view of the stage. The movable walls of the multi-function stage, meanwhile, can be closed to create an intimate space perfect for solo piano or small ensemble, or opened to reveal a stage capable of showcasing a full orchestra.
