THE PORTER CENTER

The Paul Porter Center for Performing Arts is Brevard College’s state-of-the-art musical and theatrical performance space. Music and theatre students perform and practice in the 700-seat, acoustically extraordinary Scott Concert Hall. All students are welcome and encouraged to visit the Scott Concert Hall for musical and theatrical productions, special campus-wide events, celebrations, and galas. The Porter Center’s large stage can easily accommodate a full symphony, but is just as often used for student solos, rehearsals, and senior recitals.

Porter Center Resources

  • The Kirkpatrick-Coleman Pipe Organ is an imposing $1.2 million instrument designed by master organ-builder Daniel Jaeckel. It features three manual divisions, 69 ranks, and 3,539 pipes.
  • The Scott Concert Hall provides seating for 700 (500 on the main floor, 200 in the balcony), incredible acoustics, and a large stage.
  • The Black Box Theatre is a more intimate theatrical space inside the Porter Center. This is the premier venue for student theatre productions, and allows the audience an extreme close-up of the performance.
