The 350-seat concert venue’s inimitable shell-like dome stands out amidst the campus landscape, but it is much more than a visual statement. The shell allows the intimate venue to have the sound of much larger space. Designed for changeable acoustics, Weber Hall was created with the performer in mind. For the more than one thousand undergraduates participating in music courses each year, not to mention the many student, resident, and guest performers who grace its stage, Weber Music Hall is the heart of music performance and appreciation for UMD and the Duluth community.
Music classes are held on the first and second floors of the Humanities building, in Bohannon and Montague Hall large lecture rooms, in the Weber Hall building and at the Chester Park building. Most ensemble classes are held at the Chester Park building while lecture classes are held mostly in the other facilities listed. Practice rooms are located in the lower levels of both the Humanities and Chester Park building. A state of the art computer lab with keyboards and music technology is also found in the Humanities building on the lower level.
