The Sanctuary

The Sanctuary was built in a similar fashion to a European opera house allowing for incredible acoustics and visceral sonic resonance. The versatile stage area has comfortably accommodated chamber orchestras, full-scale opera productions, and dozens of choral singers. The Estey pipe organ has been regularly maintained since installation in 1906 and is in perfect working order for performances ranging from classical to avant-garde. Ornately carved antique pews on 3 levels provide a seating capacity of 425. The venue also features a retractable cinema screen and projection capability. 
 

ART + SCIENCE

Epsilon Spires hosts a multimedia art gallery on the top balcony of the Sanctuary with a curatorial focus on interactive installations that merge art and science to investigate the political implications of perception and subjectivity.
