As you plan your trip to "The Hult,", know that there is a very good parking garage located right next to it. This venue is located in the downtown area, and signs clearly mark the route to "The Hult" as you enter Eugene from I-5. We have attended numerous performances in both venues on site. The larger, Silva Concert Hall,... More

We can't count the number of times we have been to Performances at the Hult. Every seat is a good one and the diversity of the annual programs meets the diversified needs of Eugene.

In my visit to the Hult Center, I found no shortage of things to appreciate about this venue. Pricey though it may be sometimes, it held great appeal in its upkeep, cleanliness, staff and in general, its overall feeling of class. I saw Joe Bonomassa perform and in the concert hall itself, the sound quality and acoustics were very good.... More

It was our pleasure to visit Hult Center during our recent trip to Eugene for The Oregon Bach Festival. This 3-week annual event showcases the music of Bach and composers who were influenced by him. The Hult Center is in downtown near lots of restaurants and parking and is considered one of Oregon's premier venues. The impressive atrium is filled... More

Wow! So many free events this summer in downtown Eugene! Check the City’s website, or pick up a copy of their “EUGfun!” summer 2015 passport. Included is a new performance series – “pARTy on the Plaza” – now happening every Thursday at the prestigious Hult Center for the Performing Arts. All the plaza events are family-friendly, 5:30 – 6:15 p.m.,... More

This venue is the premier facility south of Portland. It contains two theaters, the larger Silva Concert Hall and the smaller Soreng Theater. Both are well maintained and comfortable.

The Hult Center is perfectly situated in downtown Eugene near plenty of parking and many nice restaurants. The concrete, tilt-up exterior is well landscaped and gives way to a grand interior. Our venue seated just over 2400 guests and seems perfectly engineered for sound. Not a bad seat in the house! With that said, the best seats are, in my... More

I have been to the Hult many times as a spectator and as a performer. It is a wonderful place. sight lines are good throughout the house. I have been told by several of the principles working with Eugene Opera that it is a good house to perform in with good acoustics although you have to work at projecting to... More
