NCH stage with musicians

The Department's facilities include the 615-seat Nightingale Concert Hall, housed in the Church Fine Arts building. Completed in 1987, the Hall is renowned for its excellent acoustics. Throughout the year, it is host to a broad range of concerts, including Apex Concerts, the Reno Jazz Festival, and the Reno Chamber Music Festival. Students get the chance to perform on the 'big stage' with their Junior, Senior and Graduate recitals. The Department's many small and large ensembles also perform at Nightingale.
