Hill Auditorium Documentary

Description

In May of 2013 the University Musical Society (UMS) celebrated the centenary of Ann Arbor’s Hill Auditorium with an original, feature-length documentary entitled: A Space for Music, A Seat for Everyone: 100 Years of UMS in Hill Auditorium.
One of the most storied venues in the United States, Hill Auditorium opened on May 14, 1913. Designed by the renowned architect Albert Kahn and boasting one of the world’s finest acoustical designs, Hill Auditorium has been a true cultural incubator for the arts community in southeast Michigan for the past 100 years.
Through concert recordings, news articles, and anecdotal interviews, this documentary provides historical context for UMS performances in Hill Auditorium while highlighting the evolving community function of the venue.
