Howard Performing Arts Center
The Howard Performing Arts Center is an elite acoustical facility designed for the performance of classical music, and southwest Michigan's home for an exceptional concert experience. The Howard has hosted several world-class performers from the international classical circuit since its opening, such as Sophie Milman, Bobby McFerrin and the Vienna Choir Boys, as well as an annual Christian Artist Series bringing artists from Sandi Patti and Point of Grace to David Phelps.
The Howard Center was made possible by a dream John and Dede Howard, originally of St. Joseph, Michigan, had for southwest Michigan. The acoustics in the Howard Center are superior to most centers with acousticians being the same group that worked with Carnegie Hall. You might be surprised to hear that even from the back row of the balcony, you can hear a pin drop in the middle of the stage. WAUS classical radio station has also made its home here in the Howard Center.
Most importantly, the performing arts center provides an invaluable resource for students and the community. The spacious, well-lit foyer is available for wedding receptions, award ceremonies and other special occasions. Don't miss you chance to experience the ambiance of a Howard Center event.
