The Fine Arts Recital Hall is located on the first floor of the Fine Arts Building.
The Recital Hall hosts a large number of events each semester which can range from international contemporary music groups, to solo faculty performances, to classical vocal ensembles, and is also the location of panel discussions, guest lectures and occasional dance and visual arts performances. The Fine Arts Building is home to several performing arts and visual arts spaces including Studio 508, a sound recording and music performance studio; Studio 317, a dance performance space; the Hallway Gallery, a small gallery that showcases student work (located on the first floor); and the Center for Art, Design and Visual Culture.

Events held in the Recital Hall often require an admissions charge, but are typically free for students and free with a UMBC ID. Student recitals and performances by UMBC student ensembles are free (pricing for each event is located in their listing). Tickets may be purchased on the day of the event in the Recital Hall Lobby. Ticket purchases made at the door are cash only. ATM’s are located in the University Center and The Commons (see map). Tickets purchased via MissionTix should be printed prior to arrival on campus, and presented at the door.
For discounted pricing and free ticketing at the door, students and UMBC community members should bring appropriate ID.
All ages are permitted to performances.
