About the Venue

Designed by renowned architect Kevin Roche, the World Music Hall has soaring side windows and a terraced interior that evokes the atmosphere of Far Eastern outdoor concerts. The non-Western performance space houses the instruments of the Javanese Gamelan orchestra. In addition to Javanese Gamelan and dance performances, the World Music Hall is a popular space for dance and music performances as well as readings.

The audience sits on carpeted tiers or floor; no installed seats exist in the hall. Seating area rises in 18" increments above floor.

Exits are located on north east and south east side of ground floor level,  and north and south of lower basement level.

Wheelchair access available via ramp on northwest entrance, no wheelchair accessible restrooms in facility. Assisted listening devices available on request.
