The School’s largest ensembles perform here as well as many of the smaller ensembles. Each year, over 100 concerts and events are presented in this hall.

The Maurice Gusman Concert Hall is used as the main venue for Frost School’s annual Festival Miami, an acclaimed international celebration of music featuring guest artists, Frost School faculty and ensembles in symphonic concerts, chamber music presentations, jazz performances, master classes, and much more.

Several hundred high school students gather in Gusman Concert Hall each year for Honor Band, Honor Orchestra, Honor Choir, and for performances and master classes with related faculty.

The administrative offices of the Phillip and Patricia Frost School of Music are housed in Gusman Concert Hall. The Office of the Dean, Undergraduate Studies, Graduate Studies, and Music Admissions are all located on the ground floor.

The Gusman Concert Hall is named in honor of the late Maurice Gusman, a beloved donor to the University of Miami.

 

Victor E. Clarke Concert Hall


The 147-seat Victor E. Clarke Recital Hall is located within the L. Austin Weeks Center for Recording and Performance. It is used daily for recitals, concerts, and ensemble performances. It was specifically designed to provide an intimate performance setting.

Its acoustics are variable so that a wide range of music can be performed with optimal listening and recording conditions. Each year, many recitals and concerts are presented in the hall.

The Victor E. Clarke Recital Hall was designed by noted acoustician Charles Boner, and is equipped with heavy draperies that can be opened and closed to provide optimal acoustics for a variety of musical styles.

This recital hall is provided with a small adjacent recording studio and also interfaces with the larger Weeks Recording Studio. In addition, a RealAudio server computer is used to stream live concerts from this hall on the Frost School of Music web site.

The Frost School of Music is grateful for the generosity of the hall’s benefactor, Victor E. Clarke.
