Setnor Auditorium | Crouse College

The Rose and Jules R. Setnor Auditorium is an acoustically rich, 700-seat concert hall in Crouse College that houses a magnificent 3,823-pipe Holtkamp Organ below a 70-foot-high open timber roof and stained glass windows.

The hall primarily functions as the main performance space for the Setnor School of Music, but it is also frequently used by such community groups as the Society for New Music, the Syracuse Children's Chorus, Symphoria, and the Syracuse chapter of the American Guild of Organists.

More than 200 free performances take place in Setnor Auditorium each year. In one week alone you might see the premiere of a new work by a local composer; the performance of your favorite Beethoven symphony; a performance by Windjammer, our resident jazz choir; a senior’s solo clarinet recital; and a guest artist’s violin recital. 

The Setnor School of Music presents a number of concert series in Setnor Auditorium, including:

  • Setnor School of Music Guest Artists Series
  • Setnor School of Music Faculty Recital Series
  • Setnor School of Music Ensemble Series
  • Setnor School of Music Student Recital Series

We invite you to visit Setnor Auditorium to attend a performance. Most concerts are free, and we provide free and easy parking.
