Performance Venues

For performance majors, the Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center houses six state-of-the-art venues, three of which are used extensively by Music students and ensembles:


Elsie & Marvin Dekelboum Concert Hall — the grand performance home of the UM Symphony Orchestra, the Maryland Chorus, the UM Symphonic Wind Ensemble, UM Concert Band, the National Orchestral Institute, and other large ensembles



Joseph & Alma Gildenhorn Recital Hall — a visual and acoustical beauty for small ensembles, chamber groups, opera scenes, and student and faculty recitalists



Ina & Jack Kay Theatre — an old-Broadway style proscenium theatre hosting full productions of the Maryland Opera Studio, and favored by jazz big bands and large world music ensembles


Additionally, the Robert & Arlene Kogod Theatre, the Dance Theatre, and the Morris and Gwendolyn Cafritz Foundation Theatre are used for cross-discipline projects and special events involving Music students & faculty. The Homer Ulrich Recital Hall located in the nearby Tawes Building (former home to the UM School of Music) is also used for student recitals and Music classes.
