The moment I first stepped into the venue I envisioned the incredible potential of classical performance coupled with the vast, advanced technology only Full Sail University could bring. This venue is extremely flexible and is capable of creating a vast array of ambiance; it is a state-of-the-art experience that adds to the beauty of acoustical live performance.
