Music, Art and Theatre Facilities
The 250-seat Auditorium was built in 2004 and is a state-of-the-art performance space and gallery. It is regularly used to put on plays, shows, and all manner of dramatic or musical performances.
This outstanding resource - one of the best acoustic spaces in Cambridge - is available to all Fitzwilliam members. Facilities include a number of practice rooms, backstage areas and a Steinway grand piano.
The Auditorium offers 3 practice rooms on the second floor (two containing upright pianos and one a harpsichord and a harmonium), a larger room suitable for small groups to rehearse on the first floor (containing an upright piano), and a band room on the basement level containing a drum kit. The practice rooms are for use by all students and keys should be signed out from the Porters' Lodge. The drum kit and band room are available for those who have registered to use these facilities with the Director of Music.
The Chapel offers an ideal venue for more intimate concerts and for the Music Society's Sunday evening series of informal Chapel Recitals. The organ is one of the finest instruments of its kind in Cambridge, and the Chapel also contains a fine two-manual Goble harpsichord, which can be adjusted to perform at 'baroque' pitch, and a Bechstein grand piano for use by more advanced performers.
Get creative in the Art Studio down Wychfield Lane (along the side of the College). This resource is available for all members of College.
