Hill Auditorium is the largest performance venue on the University of Michigan campus, in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The auditorium was named in honor of Arthur Hill (1847-1909), who served as a regent of the university from 1901 to 1909. He bequeathed $200,000 to the university for the construction of a venue for lectures, musical performances, and other large productions. Opened in 1913, the auditorium was designed by Albert Kahn and Associates. It was recently renovated by the same firm beginning in 2002 and was re-opened in 2004.With seating for up to 3,538 (originally 4,100 prior to the 2004 renovation) audience members, Hill is one of the most popular venues for large productions on campus. The building routinely hosts performances given by the School of Music's various ensembles, including the University of Michigan Symphony Orchestra, University of Michigan Philharmonia Orchestra, University of Michigan Concert Band, University of Michigan Symphony Band, and University of Michigan Choirs, as well as the mostly non-major ensembles such as the University of Michigan Arts Chorale, the Campus Symphony Orchestra, Campus Bands, the Michigan Marching Band, and the Men's Glee Club and Women's Glee Club. The auditorium is also host to the Detroit Catholic Central High School graduation each May.

  • We went to see Diana Krall at Hill Auditorium last night. We've seen her at other venues but Hill Auditorium was the best by far. The acoustics are amazing and the intimacy of the space makes for a gr...  more »
  • Have seen numerous events here. Every seat in the house is great. If you are not stable on your feet, try to stay on the main floor, I fell from the upper level.  more »

  • The location is central with lots of restaurants nearby to go before or after a show. The seats were easy enough to find. The ushers were great too. It was really comfortable and clean. The acoustics were fantastic. So good that you would have to be careful when it is quiet or everyone can hear whatever you are doing or saying! The Bavarian Radio Orchestra was brilliant & the Life Sciences Orchestra put up a fantastic performance too!
  • The acoustics are outstanding at Hill. And the decor brings one back in time. Seats are a bit smallish for the average person nowadays. And parking can be a bit of a mess. Hence the 4 instead of 5 stars. However, a concert at Hill is well worth some of the small inconveniences.
  • This is a beautiful place! Watched Handel's Messiah and loved the show. The acoustics in here are great and I would definitely come back.
  • Chick Corea says it is one of his favorite places to perform. Nuff said.
  • Breathtaking 100+ year old auditorium that seats over 3500 people! Performances from university groups (glee clubs, orchestras, etc.) and out of town performers - UMS brings in global orchestras like the New York Philharmonic and the Berlin Philharmonic as well as non-classical acts. Always a joy to see entertainment here!
