Ensemble Performance Venues

Ensembles performing during the opening day (July 7) will perform in the Ellie Opera House or Stage Theatre. Late-night ensemble performances (evenings July 8-10) will be held in the two venues below.

Small EnsemblesThe Chambers Grant Salon is a lovely, limestone space that seats approximately 350 audience members with a small stage at one end of the hall. Audience members will be seated at tables and food and beverages will be served creating a true "cabaret" setting for Ensemble Performances. View a stage diagram.

The Stage Theater is a thrust-stage theater with the capacity for 700 audience members. This space is best for larger ensembles or ones that want to utilize more stage space. The acoustics are designed for theatre performances but because of the intimacy of the seating the sound should work well for any Ensemble. View a stage diagram
