In the world of performance halls, a few venues stand above the rest. In Houston, one such venue is the Stude Concert Hall,
which is on the campus of Rice University. The Stude Concert Hall is part of the Alice Pratt Brown Hall, which is an integral
part of the Shepherd School of Music. The theater
events held at the Stude Concert Hall are a way to enjoy top-notch performance arts.
Every part of the Stude Concert Hall gives it a stately feel. The hall features mahogany trip, curved plaster surfaces
and velour draperies. It features a capacity of 1,000, making it big enough to accommodate amazing events, yet small enough
to feel intimate. Every detail of the Stude Concert Hall was designed to showcase performance art.
Easily the jewel of Stude Concert Hall is its 1965 Steinway "D" piano. Many famous pianists have played on this particular
Steinway piano in the past, and legends like Vladimir Horowitz, Arthur Rubenstein, Van Cliburn have signed the Stude Concert
Hall's piano. Every new theater event at the
Stude Concert Hall adds to its rich history of entertainment and performance.
