Exceptional Facility

Much of Reinhardt's music instruction takes place in the Falany Performing Arts Center or FPAC. You will enjoy performing, attending classes, practicing, and socializing in the beautiful facility. It also serves the University and the community as a center for artistic expression through the varied concerts, performances and events it hosts each year.  This building contains:

  • Pianos - In 2007, the music department became a Kawai EPIC school with 34 state-of-the art pianos placed in studios, classrooms, practice rooms, and on the stage of the concert hall.
  • Concert Hall - The exquisite 360-seat auditorium features a "tunable" stage. Its acoustics can be modified by moving the wooden stage columns, the ceiling panels, and the curtains to complement the soloist, small ensemble, or orchestra. Because of its fine sound quality, the concert hall is an exciting place to perform.
  • Kawai music technology lab: has computerized keyboard stations for 12 students and an instructor.
