Rental Information

 

Performance Hall
     

James and Margaret Black Performance Hall

Facility Description
 
The James and Margaret Black Performance Hall is a state-of-the-art facility. From fully staged operas to rock and country shows, the Rozsa Center is more than ready to handle your performance. The hall seats 1101 people at its largest configuration. Smaller performances will be well suited to the 583-seat configuration. In our inaugural season the performance hall received rave reviews from national and international performers, including the Grand Rapids Symphony Orchestra and the Canadian Brass. Local groups have had record-breaking fundraisers utilizing the performance hall and local talent. Sold-out performances are a regular occurrence at the Rozsa Center.
 
The Klungness stage in the Black Performance Hall features a trap door and a five-ton, fifty-foot-long moving orchestra pit that can be used for an orchestra, for additional seating, or as an extension of the stage. In concert hall mode, the proscenium part of the Klungness stage unfolds and combines with other hidden walls to form an acoustical shell that requires very little manpower to put up or take down. Concert hall mode greatly increases the natural projection of all sound made on the stage and is appropriate for choral and instrumental performances. In theatrical mode, the shell ceiling and walls disappear to create a proscenium stage that is 32 feet deep (from plaster line to cyc) and 38 feet wide. We have thirty-two counter weight line sets and four touch-screen-controlled electric winches.
 
Our sound and lighting systems give us the capability to create shows that are technically spectacular. Our lighting system boasts two top-of-the-line lighting consoles, 480 dimmers, and over 400 new lighting instruments, including several intelligent lights. The sound system also has two modes. The first is a distributed system for lectures. The second is a 10,000-watt jazz and rock system, boasting a forty-channel soundboard at the house mix position, and another forty-channel board in the control room.
