Light FixtureInspired by the fixture at the Metropolitan Opera, the light fixture in the Reynolds Hall ceiling has many functions. It marries design and function by avoiding sightline issues, enhancing acoustics and hiding catwalks and lighting equipment allowing for adjustments during performances unbeknownst to the audience.
BackstageThe back of the house was given just as much attention to detail as the front. This creates a unique, and comfortable environment for the artists who bring their talents to The Smith Center. There have been over 400 performances since The Smith Center opened in March 2012, and every performer is invited to sign the Autograph Wall backstage at Reynolds Hall.
Rhythm SectionThis intimate 250-seat club spotlights some of the world’s most gifted jazz artists and cabaret entertainers.

This two story venue has a view of downtown, and a mezzanine balcony for a truly unique view of the stage.
