Since the building opened in 1930, Kaufmann Concert Hall has been home to thousands of performances, readings and lectures. Long heralded as a place to experiment and debut new ideas, Kaufmann Concert Hall enables performers and patrons to explore new horizons.
The classically styled interior allows the theater to operate as a multipurpose venue. Original walnut paneling serves as a lush canvas for the gold-etched names of great leaders, writers and philosophers. The hall's excellent acoustics are admired for live musical performances, while its theatrical attributes make it a superb venue for lectures, readings, conferences and spoken word performances.
