Victor E. Clarke Recital 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.
