Anne & Howard Gottlieb Hall

Designed specifically for acoustic chamber music, Merit’s Anne & Howard Gottlieb Hall provides a beautiful and elegant setting for any event where stellar acoustics are important to the success of an event. The two-level hall seats up to 350 people (250 on the main floor and a 100-seat balcony); or main level seats may be removed to create an open and airy space to accommodate cocktail receptions, banquets or other custom set-ups. The 1,000-sq. foot performance stage accommodates 80 seats.

Gottlieb Hall is ideal for musical/stage performances, lectures, master classes, recordings and auditions, and is equally suited to receptions, fundraisers, and “meet & greets” – any event where guests are encouraged to mix and mingle – with the option of using the elevated stage as a focal point.

Included in the rental package is use of the backstage storage area, a green room, and a Steinway D piano. Gottlieb Hall offers livestream capability, with A/V support and conference phones available upon request. Merit Facilities staff are available on-site to assist with any last-minute logistics to ensure the success of your event. Groups requiring supplemental facilities staff support may request it for an additional charge.

As with all events held at Merit School of Music, Gottlieb Hall events enjoy the benefit of visibility and signage in the front lobby, along with the support of Merit facilities staff, ensuring a welcoming and helpful environment for guests.
