About the venue

Hailed by Frank Bruni in The New York Times as a “stunning music hall with sumptuous acoustics” and by Tim Smith in The Baltimore Sun as “architecturally and acoustically inviting,” the beautiful Earl and Darielle Linehan Concert Hall seats 375 people and is the site of both professional and student performances produced by UMBC Department of Music, as well as distinguished lectures and other events. Linehan Concert Hall is equipped with a 9-foot Steinway grand concert piano and cutting edge recording and performance technologies.

Linehan Concert Hall is located in UMBC’s new Performing Arts and Humanities Building, and is located about 15 minutes from Baltimore’s Inner Harbor and about 25 minutes from the Washington Beltway (I-495).
