Performing Arts Center
217 College Ave, Somerville, MA 02144
Opened in February of 2007, the Granoff Music Center is home to the Tufts Music Department, over 180 events and concerts annually, and the Tufts Community Music Program for children and adults. In the short time the facility has been open, thousands have entered the center’s performance halls and classrooms to experience music from Java to the Middle East, from African Drumming circles of Ghana to the concert halls of Paris, from compositions of Renaissance Venice to those created in the modern computer lab, from Opera to Caberet.
From the classrooms, practice rooms and rehearsal spaces to–most significantly–the 300-seat Distler Performance Hall, the Perry and Marty Granoff Music Center was designed with exquisite attention to acoustical detail. The 55,000-square-foot facility is allowing Tufts students and faculty, along with the wider community, to learn, teach, create, perform and enjoy music in a way that has previously not been possible on campus.
