Cheap prices and decent concerts make up for bad acoustics.. The Vibe In praising his faculty, Ronald Jones, the new dean of the University of South Florida College of Fine Arts, noted that their willingness and ability to produce fine work despite spending time in totally inadequate facilities was evidence of their talent.
USF's Music Recital Hall is essentially a classroom that seats about 300. The acoustics are flat, the lighting substandard, and the space itself not very attractive. But the hall regularly hosts amazing performances by world-class musicians--most concerts and recitals come from USF faculty members, including Robert Helps, a composer and pianist with an international reputation for contemporary classical music.
The best thing about the recital hall? Admission is seldom more than $4, and student and senior discounts are available.
