Margo Jones Performance Hall is the primary performance facility for the Department of Music. This beautiful hall has excellent acoustics and a seating capacity of 1,074.
Located in the Music Building, Margo Jones Performance hall was originally built in the 1920's, and was the premier theatre in North Texas. Artists such as John Phillip Sousa, Isaac Stern, Vladimir Horowitz, Lily Pons, Robert Frost, Yehudi Menuhin, and others came to Texas Woman's University to perform in the facility. In 1987 the Hall was closed for a $3.5 million renovation that was completed in April 1990. Renovated features of the Hall include new lighting, motorized rigging, new sound systems and a stage floor constructed on a cushioned rubber mounting.
The 1,074 seat Margo Jones Performance Hall features orchestral level seating of 812 total seats and balcony seating of 262 total seats. This state-of-the-art performance facility enhances our music, drama and dance productions. It boasts an 85-rank, 4-manual Redman organ plus both Bösendorfer and Steinway concert grand pianos. The Margo Jones Performance Hall provides students, faculty and professional artists outstanding facilities for a variety of creative events.
In addition to the numerous concerts featured here throughout the year, the hall is also a venue for other noteworthy events including official university ceremonies, guest lectures, and fashion productions.
