The 947-seat Faye Spanos Concert Hall (FSCH) is the primary performance venue for the University of the Pacific (UofP)’s music program, located in the historic Conservatory of Music building. The Conservatory building was constructed in 1927 and contains the FSCH, as well as several faculty studios, practice rooms, and the Conservatory’s administrative offices; concert hall was renovated in 1988.
FSCH is home to the UotP Conservatory’s Concert Series, Resident Artist Series, and Friends of Chamber Music concerts, as well as the Stockton Opera. Other events featured on the FSCH stage include the annual Festival of Japanese Music and Culture (a week-long festival held in the Fall) and many of the concerts affiliated with the University’s annual Brubeck Festival, celebrating the life and music of one of jazz’s most acclaimed innovators, Dave Brubeck.
