The School of the Arts Department of Music is home to two state-of-the-art performance spaces: the Nightingale Concert Hall (Church Fine Arts Building) and the Harlan O. and Barbara R. Hall Recital Hall (University Foundation Arts Building). The department accepts requests for reservations of these premium spaces and evaluates them in accordance with the established priorities and procedures. These include, but are not limited to:
- Appropriate use of space: the use of the spaces for their intended purposes, and the availability of technical support and requirements. (e.g. recitals, art productions, etc.). Please note that large productions, such as extended events, dance events, etc. may represent an insurmountable burden on department priorities, and may be denied.
- Potential conflicts with already-scheduled or planned events.
- The priorities between different applicants in the following order: Department of Music, School of the Arts, College of Liberal Arts, University, Community Professional Organizations, other applicants.
Please note that an event is not considered a University-related event unless it is presented by a University-affiliated entity. Faculty members or staff may not act as proxies on behalf of outside entities.
All applicants not affiliated with the University must submit a non-refundable deposit of $250 in order to proceed with the reservation. This deposit must be presented in person at the Department of Music Office (Virginia Street Gym) and will count towards the final cost of the rental, upon billing.
All initial requests must be directed to James Cavanaugh (Department Technical Director), who will inform the applicants of the final determination on all decisions, in consultation with the department and college leadership and staff.
If you need a reservation application, please email James Cavanaugh.
