The Engelman Recital Hall is a beautiful, intimate and classic recital hall with 175 seats and raked seating. The hall houses a Class D Steinway Concert Grand piano, which is available for rentals.

The stage is 21' x 21' downstage (21' x 14' upstage) with a blond hardwood floor. A Strand mini-board offers eight preset cues, and recording within the space is possible.
