Centennial Hall

Situated on the University of Arizona campus, this is the venue for the popular "UA Presents" series, which offers around ten events every year including classical music, Broadway shows, performance artists, dance, jazz, and blues. With 2,400 seats, this is Tucson's biggest concert hall. It is excellent for big symphonic events, but acoustic performers sometimes seem lost without the aid of microphones. Ticket prices vary according to events.

The Temple of Music & Art

Built in 1927, the Temple of Music and Art is a proper cultural arts venue. Constructed in an elegant, Southwestern style, the Temple breathes grace and class with its beautiful surroundings of cobbled stone, fountain–splashed patio, and quiet tree-lined street. Now home of the Arizona Theatre Company, the spacious Alice Holsclaw Theatre with its 623 seats is a marvelous place to see either Shakespeare or concerts. If a smaller, more intimate setting is desired for a performance, upstairs the Temple has the Cabaret Theatre available.

Fox Tucson Theatre

This building, designed in 1929 by Los Angeles architect M. Eugene Durfee, once belonged to the chain of movie theaters showing Fox Studio productions and was decorated with those Art Deco motifs that were typical of the movie houses of the period. After long years of falling into disrepair and neglect since 1974, it is now in the process of being renovated and revitalized, due to the much-publicized efforts of a group of conservationist citizens. Today it hosts a variety of live performances, including concerts, musicals, and lectures.

Tucson Convention Center

This is Tucson's main venue for the performing arts, home of the Tucson Symphony Orchestra and the Arizona Opera, as well as the locale for pop music concerts, sports events and major trade conventions. A result of 1970s style urban renewal, it is only somewhat interesting stylistically compared to the old adobe buildings that were bulldozed to make room for what now stands. However, some abstract sculptures and fountains outside the complex provide food for the art lover's imagination. There are three performance venues - Tucson Arena, Tucson Music Hall, and the Leo Rich Theater, as well as a number of Ballrooms. Every February the Center hosts the preeminent Tucson Gem and Mineral Show.
