  • The Instrument Rehearsal Hall accommodates the largest ensembles at CSU including the 275 person CSU Marching Band – no more rain soaked, hot, cold, or dark practices!
  • A large instrument storage area allows faculty and students to have instant access to chairs, stands, and a vast array of percussion instruments according to the needs of the class.
  • The space is outfitted with technical equipment including a projector and screen, numerous speakers, and recording equipment. There is a camera for recording conducting students and other class presentations. The marching band often studies videos of their performances on the large screen.
  • Acoustic panels throughout the room and in the ceiling to create an optimal setting for any group practicing or performing. The beautiful maple floor provides the same type of acoustic response as the Concert Hall. The acoustics are adjustable with strategically placed curtains to accommodate an orchestra, concert band, or marching band.
  • The room is 4,800 square feet with a 40 foot ceiling. The cubic space accommodates large ensembles, including the marching band, or a full orchestra with chorus, while preserving hearing.
  • The University Center for the Arts is furnished with over 75 high-quality pianos distributed throughout the performance venues, rehearsal spaces, and practice rooms, including many new Steinways.
