Kitt Recital Hall

Northern Arizona University

Northern Arizona University’s renovated and expanded Music Building features the state-of-the art, 250-seat Kitt Recital Hall with adjacent rehearsal and practice room spaces for instrumental and vocal studies, as well as choral and instrument libraries. Kitt also connects directly to the adjacent Ardrey Memorial Auditorium, a previous MCH renovation project in 2011.

Kitt opened with a performance by pianist Jeffrey Swan, NAU’s distinguished artist in residence, with whom MCH worked to tune the hall’s variable acoustics. In addition to tracked variable acoustic drapery which can extend all around the upper level of the room and behind performers, the hall features compound-curved wood overhead and side-wall reflectors to ensure sound from the stage is uniformly distributed across the stage as well as out to audience.

MCH provided full-scope acoustical consulting for the entire renovation and expansion.
