About Clowes Memorial Hall

This 2,200-seat hall opened in 1963 to national architectural news coverage. Unique interior elements include no interrupting aisles for center seats, a close proximity to the stage and a special acoustic design for symphonies. Butler Ballet, Butler Symphony and other music groups perform regularly at Clowes, but the concert hall hosts such diverse attractions as Broadway Across America, John Mellencamp and Street Drum Core.
