The Performing Arts and Humanities Building at UMBC
UMBC’s new Performing Arts and Humanities Building (PAHB) offers exceptional venues for performances and lectures, settings for teaching and research, and opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration.
The PAHB is home to the departments of Ancient Studies, Dance, English, Music, Philosophy, and Theatre; the James T. and Virginia M. Dresher Center for the Humanities; the Center for Innovation, Research and Creativity in the Arts; the Humanities Scholars Program; and the Linehan Artist Scholars Program. Its major public venues, which host dozens of lectures and performances annually, include the Earl and Darielle Linehan Concert Hall, a proscenium theatre, the Dance Cube, a black box theatre, the Music Box, and a lecture hall.
Earl and Darielle Linehan Concert Hall
Hailed by Frank Bruni in The New York Times as a “stunning music hall with sumptuous acoustics,” Earl and Darielle Linehan Concert Hall opened in fall 2014 and seats 375. The hall, which features state-of-art acoustics and a recording studio, is the primary concert venue in the award-winning Performing Arts and Humanities Building at UMBC (University of Maryland, Baltimore County) in Baltimore, Maryland, and features year-round performances by guest artists, faculty, and student ensembles such as the UMBC Symphony.
