Plyler-Griffin Recital Hall
More intimate than McGee Theatre, the Plyler-Griffin Recital Hall is small concert hall that seats 174. Frequently used for recitals, the acoustics of this space are something to be marveled. It is also equipped with an array of multimedia technologies. The recital hall lends itself to being the perfect location for meetings and conferences.
