Building W16: Kresge Auditorium

Kresge Auditorium houses a 1,200-seat performance hall and a 200-seat theatre, as well as rehearsal rooms and dressing rooms. These spaces serve as the primary performance facilities for MIT Music and Theatre Arts productions and works by a number of student organizations.

Kresge was designed by architect Eero Saarinen and dedicated in 1955 to serve as “the meeting house of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.”

Thank you! I really like how the conductor told the audience about the history of the piece they were going to hear. I have never seen that before in a Symphony and I found that it truly enhanced the whole experience.

I thought he was great. I would have liked to meet him and see if he knew my brother, a violist in the BSO, and that he was on Fulbright scholarship in Rome studying Viola D'Amore. The viola d'amore is my favorite string instrument. My brother, Joseph Pietropaolo passed away 3 years ago.
