Bovard Auditorium

The USC Thornton Symphony and Wind Ensemble perform in the historic Bovard Auditorium. Completely restored and renovated in 2003, Bovard Auditorium is the largest performance space on campus and is filled with grandeur for performers and audiences alike.

Bing Theatre

Located in the center of campus, the Bing Theatre is a traditional proscenium house hosting both theatrical and musical performances, including those given by the USC Thornton Opera. It is equipped with a fly system, trap doors, and an orchestra pit. In 2001 the Bing got a new lobby and seats, and in the summer of 2005 the proscenium was modified to improve acoustics in the theater.

Alfred Newman Recital Hall

Alfred Newman Recital Hall is home to the USC Thornton Jazz Orchestra, Chamber Orchestra, smaller ensembles and the Thornton Music Masters Series, not to mention countless student performances. Originally known as Allan Hancock Auditorium and re-dedicated in 1999, Newman Hall was carefully designed to provide outstanding acoustics for all kinds of music, from solo piano to jazz ensembles, with a richness often lacking in other modern halls.  

Jeannette MacDonald Recital Hall

The 1,752-square-foot, 100-seat Jeanette MacDonald Recital Hall is the newest facility to join the USC Thornton lineup. This hall is home to the Charles Hirt Choral Lab and provides an intimate venue for student recitals, master classes and choral ensemble performances.
