The Performing Arts Center is the building in the Performing and Visual Arts Complex in which Hugh Hodgson Concert Hall and Ramsey Concert Hall are found.

Hugh Hodgson Concert Hall is the larger of the two concert halls in the Performing Arts Center. Named for the founder of the University's School of Music, the hall seats 1,100 persons in festival-style seating (seats surround the stage). Its superb acoustics complement solo artists as well as chamber ensembles and full symphony orchestras.

Ramsey Concert Hall, seating 360 persons, offers a more intimate setting for solo recitals and chamber music concerts. Named in honor of Bernard Ramsey, this hall hosts the Ramsey Concert Hall Series of new artists as well as providing a performing home for doctoral students and faculty members. As in Hugh Hodgson Concert Hall, seats surround the performing area.
