Musical life at Lewis & Clark centers in Evans Music Center, which houses rehearsal rooms, 22 practice rooms, faculty offices and teaching studios, classrooms, and music offices. The 400-seat Evans Auditorium is well known in Portland for its superior acoustics.
Agnes Flanagan Chapel is also used for major concerts. Fir Acres Theatre provides excellent facilities for production of opera, musicals, and other types of theatre. The Department of Music makes use of an extensive collection of more than 4,000 recordings—plus a fully equipped listening center—housed in Aubrey R. Watzek Library.
Within Evans Music Center, students have access to a fully equipped Electronic Music Studio that provides facilities for experimenting with the latest trends in the field and enables students to produce their own digitally-based music. The building houses 43 pianos—including a fine 9-foot Steinway concert grand, four 7-foot grands, and sixteen 6-foot grands—two harpsichords, and a baroque organ. An 85-rank Casavant organ housed in the College chapel is appropriate for performance of all styles and periods and is one of the finest organs on the West Coast. Two other pipe organs are also available on campus.
