TCU is pleased to announce that the concert hall in the new TCU Music Center will be named the Van Cliburn Concert Hall at TCU in honor of the beloved concert pianist and Fort Worth legend.
This new intimate hall, with a little more than 700 seats wrapping fully around the hall, is designed acoustically as a grand concert hall, with similar acoustical volume to mirror concert halls with double to triple this seating capacity. The acoustical environment is adjustable, so it can be tuned, depending on the nature of the performance.
David and Dana Porter of Fort Worth led the fundraising effort to name the concert hall in support of the overall campaign to build a world-class music facility. “Dana and I are delighted to be part of the effort to name TCU’s new concert hall after Van Cliburn,” said David Porter. “It is fitting given the long association between Van and TCU dating back to the first Van Cliburn Competition hosted at Ed Landreth Hall. Fort Worth was blessed to be home to Van, and the Van Cliburn Concert Hall will be a continuation of that blessing for performing arts at TCU and in Fort Worth.”
The TCU Music Center is schedule to open in fall 2020.
