Acoustic excellence

Katzin Concert Hall is one of the most used performance venues in ASU's Music Building

Perfect. A word many strive for yet find difficult to achieve. However, ASU’s School of Music in the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts says its Katzin Concert Hall is “acoustically perfect.”

Equipped with a maple-paneled stage, multifaceted walls and an acoustically engineered billowed ceiling, the hall is sponsored by David Katzin; owner of Bud-get Rent a Car, and the Katzin family; and is used for solo, small orchestra and chamber music recitals featuring students, faculty and guest artists.
