Performance Venues

The University of Tampa is fortunate to have a variety of unique performance spaces on campus. With over 80 concerts per year, including ensemble performances, master classes, student and faculty recitals, and guest artists of international renown, the concert facilities at UT offer performers a variety of acoustics and ambiance suitable for all types of music.

Sykes Chapel and Center for Faith and Values   
One of UT's most distinguished buildings is the Sykes Chapel and Center for Faith and Values. The center is an acoustically superior and adaptable space and can accommodate 260 people. Careful detailing of the walls, floors, roof, windows and doors isolates the center from outside noise. Background noise from air conditioning and lighting systems has been reduced to very low levels so that instrumental and vocal projection is clearly audible. The main hall houses one of the finest pipe organs in the region. Built by the Dobson Organ Company of Lake City Iowa, the 58-stop, mechanical action organ contains over 3,000 pipes. Choral concerts, chamber music performances, and a noted concert series of guests artists take place in Sykes Chapel.

Fletcher Lounge, Plant Hall  
Said to be "the most enchanting ballroom in Tampa," Fletcher Lounge was renovated in 1992 to its original state as the main dining room of the Tampa Bay Hotel. This spectacular ballroom is the largest of the three and has a multiple-domed ceiling and hardwood floors. Because of the reverberant acoustics, choral concerts and other larger ensemble concerts are held in Fletcher. The facility is also home to a Steinway concert grand piano and can seat 350 people.
