Performance Spaces at RIT

Ingle Memorial Auditorium and Allen Chapel are the two primary facilities on campus utilized by the RIT Music Program for concerts and events.

Ingle Memorial Auditorium is located in the Student Alumni Union. It is commonly used for concerts, other performances, and weekly movie showings. The auditorium was designed as a cultural center for plays and musical events at RIT. It previously served as the campus chapel until the construction of the Schmitt Interfaith Center in 1985. Ingle was dedicated on May 17, 1969. The auditorium was constructed in the bequest of Arthur H. Ingle, a trustee. The auditorium was named in memory of his mother, Albenia Elizabeth Ingle, and his wife, Maude Dennie Ingle. The auditorium has 505 seats and is equipped with professional sound and lighting support, making it the ideal location for larger concert performances. It is the home of RIT’s Performing Artists Concert Series.

 


Allen Chapel is located within The Kilian J. and Caroline F. Schmitt Interfaith Center, located on the east end of the Student Alumni Union. It is known for its pristine acoustics and peaceful setting, making it an ideal location for chamber concerts and vocal recitals. Its intimate feel, and mid-sized capacity of approximately 150, provides an excellent space for student recitals as well as concerts of larger ensemble, such as the RIT Orchestra. It is also where the newly launched Faculty Spotlight concert series occurs. Allen Chapel is maintained by the wonderful people at the Center for Religious Life.
