The School of Music is home to two state-of-the-art facilities: the Nightingale Concert Hall and the Harlan O. and Barbara R. Hall Recital Hall. We accept requests for use of these premium spaces by on-campus, non-profit, and commercial users.
How are requests evaluated?
Requests are evaluated in accordance with established policies and considerations which 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 to fulfill requirements (e.g. recitals, art productions, etc.).
- Size of the event. Large events, such as extended production runs, dance events, etc. may represent an insurmountable burden on department priorities and may not be possible.
- Scheduling issues. Potential conflicts with previously scheduled or planned events.
- Event prioritization. Prioritization of events in order from high to low: Department of Music curricular events (scheduled course meetings rehearsals, and performances); University administration; School of the Arts, College of Liberal Arts; University entities/colleges; Non-profit and commercial applicants.
Rental fees will be assessed based on scheduled rates within the School of Music based on the classifications of on-campus/University, non-profit, or commercial users.
Deposit required. All requests from entities outside of the University must be secured with a non-refundable deposit of $250. This must presented in person at the School of Music Office (Virginia Street Gym 100) and will be applied towards the final cost of the rental.
