Swarthout Recital Hall To Reopen At KU

KSAL StaffMarch 30, 2015

A $2.5 million, 10-month renovation project is completed at Swarthout Recital Hall on the University of Kansas campus.

The hall has been the School of Music’s primary academic performance space since 1957. However, it had not been renovated for decades, prompting the university to begin the renovation project last year.

The hall will reopen with an eight-concert series starting Monday. Dozens of alumni are scheduled to perform during the series.

The renovation included 273 new seats, a new performance area with improved acoustics, audio, lighting and recording equipment. The hall also has a new Steinway piano.

The music school’s dean, Robert Walzel, says the renovation was funded by a $1 million gift from the Muriel McBrien Kauffman Foundation and donations from many others.
