The main performance hall remodeled in 1999, the hall features a 65 x 40 foot stage, seating for 830 patrons, as well as wheelchair accessible seating and restrooms. The magnificent Elizabeth M. Eaton Memorial Pipe Organ, a 50-rank, 3-manual instrument built by nun master craftsman Charles McManis, was rededicated in October 2000.

A few steps further to the east is the Studio for the Performing Arts Recital Hall which opened in 2021. The 150-seat, acoustically designed, state-of-the-art performance space is perfect for smaller recitals, lectures and College presentations.
