The Paul Porter Center for the Performing Arts is Brevard College’s state-of-the-art musical and theatrical performance space.
The 700-seat Scott Concert Hall is acoustically extraordinary, and the venue for student rehearsals, performances, theatrical productions and campus galas. Scott Hall also showcases chamber concerts and operas during the Brevard Music Festival and an impressive lineup of local and national artists including the Brevard Philharmonic, Brevard Community Band and Transylvania Choral Society.
The large stage can accommodate a full symphony or student solo performance. The Steep Canyon Rangers hold their traditional last concert of each year at the Porter Center.
The Porter Center features:
- The Kirkpatrick-Coleman Pipe Organ is an imposing $1.2 million instrument designed by master organ-builder Daniel Jaeckel. It features three manual divisions, 69 ranks, and 3,539 pipes.
- The Scott Concert Hall provides seating for 700 (500 on the main floor, 200 in the balcony), incredible acoustics, and a large stage.
- The Black Box Theatre is a more intimate theatrical space inside the Porter Center. This is the premier venue for student theatre productions, and allows the audience an extreme close-up of the performance.
