About our Spaces

The arts and state-of-the-art technology meet here, with superb acoustics and great lines of sight for more than 1,000, or the James and Margaret Black Performance Hall reduces to create a small-audience configuration that seats 583 close to the stage in the thick of the action.  

The Keweenaw Peninsula's most dramatic indoor venue, the Samuel and Grace Horner Lobby, and one of the largest formal spaces in the region was designed with a neutral color scheme tailor-made for customizing.  

Choral Rehearsal Room

Our Choral Rehearsal Room—equipped with a Steinway B piano—is acoustically designed to maximize sound quality for recitals, and rehearsals of all kinds.

Not just for vocalizing, it's Power-Point presentation ready, and ideal for meetings of 50–100. The air-conditioned space features multimedia classroom amenities, including VHS/DVD movie projection and stereo sound.
