With its superb acoustics, Hill Auditorium has served as the premier location to host many outstanding events.

In addition, former University Musical Society President, Charles Sink, raised another $150,000 to complete the concert hall which opened in 1913. Since then, Hill Auditorium has been visited by some of the world’s most well-known performance artists.

Designed by architect William Kapp and architectural sculptor Corrado Parducci, Rackham Auditorium was quickly recognized as the ideal venue for chamber music. In 1941, the Musical Society presented its first chamber music festival with the Musical Art Quartet of New York performing three concerts in as many days, and the current Chamber Arts Series was born in 1963. Chamber music audiences and artists alike appreciate the intimacy, beauty and fine acoustics of the 1,060-seat auditorium, which has been the location for hundreds of chamber music concerts throughout the years.
