The Lee Music Performance & Rehearsal Room is a 3,500-square-foot space with soaring 30-foot ceilings. Motorized adjustable baffles inside the perforated cherry wood walls enable the acoustics of the space to be adjusted for different types of music. Dimmed programmable lighting offers rehearsal and performance support. The space functions as the primary rehearsal room for the Princeton University Orchestra and can be used as rehearsal space and a performance space for smaller ensembles, jazz concerts and recitals. This room and many of the studios in the Effron Music Building are equipped for high quality professional recording. Windows set high in the room enable visitors to look down into rehearsals.
Where is the Lee Music Performance & Rehearsal Room?
The Lee Music Room is on the Forum level of the arts complex. When entering the complex from the exterior doors near NJ Transit Princeton Station and Wawa, descend the stairs or take a gently sloping ramp down into the Forum. Stay to the right side of the Forum, pass instrument lockers on the right wall, and the Lee Music Room is on the right. When entering the Forum from the Wallace Dance Building elevator or “dancing” stair, enter the Forum and travel towards the Information Desk and several seating areas with chairs and tables. Once near the CoLab, turn right and just beyond the Effron elevator and staircase is the entrance to the Lee Music room. When entering the Forum from the Arts Tower elevator, pass the CoLab, staircase and elevators on the left, and the Lee Music Room entrance is straight ahead. When entering the Forum from the Effron Music Building elevator or staircase, turn left beyond a wall with shelving units to access the Lee Music Room entrance.
The best way to access the Lee Music Room is from the Forum level entrance on Theater Drive across from the train station where the entrance is ramp accessible. The space is also elevator accessible from the plaza at either the Arts Tower entrance or Effron Music Building entrance across from the Roth Box Office.
