Recording Spaces

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 produced by the talented musicians who take its stage. That controlled environment it ideal as a recording venue.

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

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.
