Notable guests have performed and taught here including names such as David Brubeck, Yo Yo Ma, Ray Brown, Marilyn Horne, John Cage, and BGSU alumna and Pulitzer Prize winner Jennifer Higdon. The hall plays host to featured guest artists, faculty recitals, daily classes and rehearsals, and scores of student performances each year. “
