Master Classes and Workshop Spaces

With more than 1,650 square feet, the Grand Rehearsal Hall, in our Grand Building, is an ideal space to host large master classes or workshops. It’s large enough to accommodate orchestras up to 50 pieces and we permanently house a grand piano. An adjustable acoustical drapery helps create an inviting setting. For a little inspiration, musicians can glance out to the famed Walt Disney Concert Hall across the street and beyond to the greater LA landscape.

Grand Rehearsal Hall features a single-level layout, which is also perfect for interactive meetings, auditions, and performances.

Thanks to its very specific construction criteria and the fact that it’s located below ground level, the only sounds to be heard in the Olive Rehearsal Hall (ORH) are those made by the talented musicians who take its stage. That controlled environment makes ORH virtually free from outside distractions, allowing students to focus.

At 3,500 square feet, ORH is the largest rehearsal space on campus. It comfortably fits large orchestras and choruses, or can be configured to highlight acoustics. In fact, it can be acoustically modified for various types of performances.

We’re extremely proud that our Zipper Hall is one of the most popular performance halls in Los Angeles. In fact, it’s become a favorite venue for Camerata Pacifica, Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, Monday Evening Concerts, Lark Musical Society, and Piano Spheres.

The Zipper Hall, which seats 430, is decked out with some of the most modern amenities for a performance space. The hall’s ceiling reaches more than 60 feet above the stage, including 16 feet above an intricate acoustically transparent trellis. The approximately 1,100-square-foot stage sits under nine acoustic “clouds” that project a soft ambient glow. The motorized drapery can be adjusted to enhance different genres. Each detail helps to elevate performances, from auditions to concerts and dance recitals.

Zipper Hall also is great for auditions, recordings, meetings, and corporate seminars.
