Belmont University’s Fisher Center for the Performing Arts houses a 1,700 seat multipurpose theatre, a grand lobby and two contiguous event spaces that can hold more than 900 guests.
The facility is outfitted for both acoustic and amplified sound. Classical concerts, operas, musical theatre performances, theatre productions, dance recitals, commercial showcases and more are held in the Center’s Performance Hall to accommodate the diverse talents of Belmont students and visiting artists. The facility includes a full fly space, wing space, orchestra pit, two forestage lifts, a trap room under the stage and television broadcast capabilities.
In addition to its onstage features, the facility has a warm-up room for dance and choral use, various sized dressing rooms, a green room, a scene dock, a loading dock, and a green roof to assist with water quality filtration, among other sustainable components. The project received LEED certification.
RBLD has been responsible for the Project’s architectural lighting design, including the design of over forty custom lighting elements. The building’s exterior will feature a comprehensive aesthetic lighting program.
