Margo Jones Performance Hall is the primary performance facility for the TWU Department of Music. This beautiful hall boasts excellent acoustics and a seating capacity of 1,074.

Located in the Music Building, Margo Jones Performance Hall was originally built in the 1920s, and was the premier theatre in North Texas. Artists including John Phillip Sousa, Isaac Stern, Vladimir Horowitz, Lily Pons, Robert Frost and Yehudi Menuhin traveled 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.

This state-of-the-art performance facility showcases our music, drama and dance productions. It boasts an 85-rank, 4-manual Redman organ plus both Bösendorfer and Steinway concert grand pianos. Oue hall provides students, faculty, staff and professional artists outstanding facilities for a variety of creative events.
