The Department of Music at the Green Music Center is located at the north campus entrance on Rohnert Park Expressway, approximately two miles east of Highway 101.
The crown jewel of the Green Music Center is undoubtedly Joan and Sanford I. Weill Hall, which opened in September 2012. Designed by architect William Rawn, theatre consultant Auerbach Pollock Friedlander, and acoustician Lawrence Kirkegaard, Weill Hall was designed to replicate the intimacy and acoustics of both Vienna’s Musikverein and Symphony Hall in Boston.
Schroeder Hall is a 240-seat recital hall, designed specifically to accentuate instruments, organ and voice in an intimate setting. Named in 2007 by Jean Schulz in honor of her late husband Charles Schulz and his iconic Charlie Brown comic strip, Schroeder Hall opened in August 2014. The primary feature of Schroeder Hall is its organ, the Brombaugh Opus 9, an American instrument built in 1972 and modeled on the Baroque-era organs of northern Germany and The Netherlands. While used for the Music department for classes, rehearsals, recitals, and performances, Schroeder is also used as a classroom by the rest of the 9,000-student University.
GMC 1028 and 1029
Located on the southern end of Music Education Hall, GMC 1028 and 1029 are used for classes, rehearsals and occasionally, performances. From the north entrance at Rohnert Park Expressway, proceed past Weill Hall and park in Lot L, across from the entrance to Weill Lawn and Commons. Enter Music Education Hall through the glass doorway at the top of the steps.
Parking for the Green Music Center is available in Lots L, M, N and O.
Evert B. Person Theatre
