Below is a detailed list of some of the most common venues for Department of Music events. Before you join us for an event on campus, please consult our driving directions and parking information. For the most current list of Music Department events, please view our Events Calendar.
Ewell Recital Hall
The Recital Hall is a functioning academic space as well as a performance hall. In it our students rehearse, take private lessons, present their senior projects, and learn that most subtle of arts: audience interaction in performance. We host a variety of performances, including our Ewell Concert Series, in the Hall each semester as well as academic events. These are offered free to the public. The Recital Hall is located in Ewell Hall on the William and Mary campus. Entry is on the west side of the building (this entrance is labeled "Music Department" above the door). The Hall seats approximately 130 people and is wheelchair accessible from the east side of the building.
