To accommodate NEC’s Jazz, Contemporary Improvisation and Percussion rehearsals and recording sessions, the SLPC also features a 2000-square foot Ensemble Room.
Occupying two floors vertically with a 32-foot-high ceiling, and acoustic reflectors 25 feet above the floor, the space is acoustically isolated. At the same time, the adjustable sound-absorbing wall banners provide a dynamic acoustical environment suitable for a variety of musical styles.
The room can function for recitals and performances by smaller ensembles and includes space for an audience of 100 to 200.
Adjacent to the space is a recording studio (linked as well to the Opera Studio and Orchestra Rehearsal Room). Two isolation booths at the side of the room provide flexible recording arrangements. Dedicated and accessible equipment and instrument storage is provided.
