Hill Auditorium, Ann Arbor
(4.9/5 based on 50+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • The building exterior is stylish with intricate brick and trim. The interior is beautiful but not over the top. The acoustics are wonderful. A great place for a performance. Go. 
  • Our most recent visit was a free lecture hosted by Malcolm Gladwell. We have enjoyed chamber music, plays, and concerts over the years and sat in every area. The acoustics are great and the views love...  more »
  • We love this place and don't believe that there is a bad seat in the place. If you want to see a great line up of music, go to the festival at the end of January.

  • The Berlin philharmonic was awesome, and I had a great first experience. As a student, one can't beat the prices. Definitely worth it. Acoustics seemed great, but it's the only symphony I've gone to
  • Amazing acoustics, not a bad seat in the house as long as you don't have a fear of heights. Incredibly talented musicians play here from all over the world.
  • I really like the auditorium, especially for concerts. The multiple levels are great for seeing the orchestra. Only downside: seats are really small.
  • Good decoration. A historic place.
  • Great venue for music and plays alike. Very reasonable prices most the time.
