Located inside Harvard University's Memorial Hall --dedicated to Harvard's own fallen in World I-- it's a beautiful concert space that hosts frequent high-caliber performances of mostly classical music. Prices are very reasonable and there are usually tickets at the door. For information please consult the "The Crimson" or the Harvard info booth at Holyoke Center.

It is part o f Memorial Hall which is the Freshman Dining Hall (Hogwarts) and the building looks like a church from the outside so many bypass it. The Transcept is gorgeous with the windows and memorials. But the theater itself is a lecture hall but also lends itself to music and theater productions, I have been in the Revels Cast at Christmas on stage and it is magical.

The theatre is acoustically very good and has amazing view of the performance area. However, very small seats. Difficult for taller and bigger people.

Concerts here are intimate and make you feel as if you are sitting in the orchestra. The Masterworks Chorale and Boston Philharmonic concerts here are a real treat, and parking is much easier than in the city!

the concert is from Summer School Harvard students, it is OK. The
theatre is grand comparable to some East Europe concert hall. I like
this lecture hall, and the greatest is free parking at the Broadway garage owned by Harvard University. The garage is on 7 Felton street which is 5 minutes away from the theatre. We actually walked
the Harvard sq.,eat dinner before going back to the garage after the concert.
