Watson Chamber Music Hall at UNCSA
One of four UNCSA School of Music performance venues, the Judy and Bill Watson Chamber Music Hall was designed by renowned acoustician Rein Pirn and architects Calloway Johnson Moore West. The 292-seat hall was designed specifically for chamber music.
The shape of the Hall echoes the curves of a violin and was designed with acoustic curtains that can be manipulated to change its acoustic properties. A special "high volume, low velocity" HVAC system was designed to minimize ambient noise.
This complex serves as both performance and teaching venue, and includes two new large rehearsal rooms, a lobby, box office, green room, dressing rooms, administrative offices and faculty teaching studios.
