Many music performances are held either in Seabrook Auditorium or in the Rosenthal Building, which are buildings adjacent to each other at the corner of Murchison Road and W.T. Brown Drive at the main entrance of the campus. The Rosenthal Art Gallery is located in the Rosenthal Building. Parking for both buildings is located behind Seabrook Auditorium.
Most of our theatre performances take place in Butler Theater, which can be accessed on the first floor of the G.L. Butler Building at the heart of campus. Sidewalks lead up from the parking area to the breezeway connecting the two halves of the Butler Building.
Parking for Butler Theater is available in the lot adjacent to the Butler Building and the Chestnutt Library at the junction of W.T. Brown Drive and Administration Drive.
The department’s Fine Arts Series brings nationally recognized speakers and performers to campus; and throughout the year the 1,134 seat Seabrook Auditorium is filled with the passion and drama of opera, symphony and live theater.

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year
The most awarded vocal group in history (10 Grammy Awards, 10 Dove Awards, a Soul Train Award and more) celebrates their 25th Anniversary. Take 6 (Claude McKnight, Mark Kibble, Joel Kibble, Dave Thomas, Alvin Chea and Khristian Dentley), heralded by Quincy Jones as the "baddest vocal cats on the planet!," is the quintessential a capella group and model for vocal genius. Six virtuosic voices united in crystal clear harmony against a backdrop of syncopated rhythms, innovative arrangements, and funky grooves that bubble into an intoxicating brew of gospel, jazz, R&B, and pop. With praise from such luminaries as Ray Charles, Stevie Wonder, Brian Wilson, Ella Fitzgerald, and Whitney Houston, the multi-platinum selling sextet has toured across the globe, collaborated across genres, and is recognized as the pre-eminent acapella group in the world.
