Denver University’s Performing Arts Center provides a new home for the Lamont School of Music and supports a diverse culture of the arts at the University’s main campus. Outstanding acoustical quality characterizes the three primary performance spaces, rehearsal spaces and studios in the new facility.

Within the building, thoughtful location and design of the individual spaces creates a vibrant interdisciplinary home for the arts. Generous public spaces elicit spontaneous practice sessions, discussions, and relaxation. The quieter teaching studio areas encourage individual practice and study.

Key considerations in the design include acoustic excellence; cutting edge music and theatre technology; performance spaces to involve the community; and practice rooms and studios to attract outstanding faculty and students. In addition to the concert hall, recital hall and flexible theatre, the center has a state-of-the-art recording studio, top floor practice rooms, and unique rehearsal rooms.
