A Space for Music
I
n the new academic building, the
College’s robustMusic Program now
has a new home with first-class prac-
tice and performance spaces. However,
faculty and students from all disciplines
are using the facilities.
The 196-seat tiered Fusco Recital Hall
is both a rehearsal and performance space
for choral and instrumental ensembles and
a lecture hall for all kinds of presentations.
The hall is acoustically treated formusical
performances and is outfitted with audio/
visual projection and recording and
surround-sound capabilities.
The recital hall was underwritten
by the Frank A. Fusco and Nelly Goletti
Fusco Foundation. A number of other
areas throughout the complex were also
supported by trustees, alumni, and friends
of Marist. For more information, please
see page 14.
Marist’s band and symphony groups
alsohaveplenty of room to rehearse in
the new 3,500-square-foot Symphonic
Hall.Thestunning space is also available
for use by the entireMarist community.
Located on the top floor of the building,
the Symphonic Hall is one of the largest
rooms on campus, with a 25-foot-high
wood coffered ceiling, floor-to-ceiling
windows, extensive acoustic treatment,
and an audio/visual system with projec-
tion and surround sound. The building
also has a practice room ideal for string
ensembles as well as practice studios, class-
rooms, a computer lab, and a music library.
The Fusco Recital Hall provided an
ideal venue for a community forum
with New York State Attorney General
Eric Schneiderman this past summer.
Amusician makes the
most of a moment alone
in the Fusco Recital Hall.
