Emerson Auditorium

Taylor Music Center

Music facilities at Union, an All-Steinway School, are based in the Taylor Music Center. The centerpiece of the building is the Fred L. Emerson Foundation Auditorium, an intimate performance space.

The Music Technology Studio, Early Music Studio, World Musics Room and Choral Library are all housed at the center, along with classrooms, practice rooms and faculty offices. The Emerson Auditorium, which seats 100, hosts Taylor Time, a series that brings professional musicians to campus for performances and workshops.

Memorial Chapel

Historic Memorial Chapel is used for choral and orchestral performances. Known for its superb sound – the acoustical ceiling was designed by one of America's preeminent scientists – the chapel is home to the Chamber Concert Series, free to students. It also is an ideal performance space for student a cappella groups and guest artists.
