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.
