" I foresee a thriving music program, student recitals, a variety of concerts, and some of the best musicians in the country stopping at Trine as they commute from Chicago to Cleveland or East Lansing to Indianapolis."

Hundreds joined Trine University on the morning of May 2, 2014 to dedicate the new T. Furth Center for Performing Arts and Ryan Concert Hall.  Later that day, the T. Furth Center officially opened with a concert by award winning writer and musician Lee Greenwood.

The $8.3 million facility blends a dream with history and tradition to create a vibrant cultural identity for northeast Indiana. The T. Furth Center preserves a historical Angola landmark while creating a beautiful, functional space for music and theatrical performances for the community. It is also a learning center with the latest technology for Trine's music students.

This facility houses our music programs and features practice rooms, studios, offices and a music library. Ryan Concert Hall, with seating for 750 guests, provides a prominent place for the arts in the lives of residents and students, expands the cultural resources of our region and creates an environment where artists can thrive. 

Be sure to check out the schedule of upcoming events for the T. Furth Center for Performing Arts.
