Austin Peay’s $9.5-million music/mass communication building is an exercise in classic design and modern application. A tree-filled, brick-paved courtyard introduces the magnificent vaulted lobby with its impressive architectural details and spacious areas for art exhibits and receptions. Musical and dramatic performances, as well as lectures and seminars, bring the elegant European-style concert hall to life. The concert hall features state-of-the-art lighting and sound systems. Guest artists and ensembles can use the building’s choral, instrumental and opera/dance rehearsal halls, built to maximize acoustics, for practice and instruction. Extensive multimedia capabilities and on-site catering are also available.
