One of the best and most spectacular music venues in the United States. Seats are really packed in close and women’s bathrooms usually have a line, as usual. But everything else about Hill is top notch.

We saw the Ann Arbor Concert Band here and it was excellent. Comfortable seats, good sound, nearby bathrooms. We really enjoyed it. The pipe organ is amazing, and the whole place is just beautiful. Definitely will go here again if we get the chance.

This seats well over 1,000 people and is great for all kinds of performances. It is beautiful, and the acoustics are great. It was renovated some years ago which made it even better than before.

In Ann Arbor, if you're a football fan, don't miss the BIG HOUSE! If you're a performance fan, don't miss Hill Auditorium, it's definitely "bucket-list" worthy. Even performers are amazed by the acoustics and are known to mention that during their encores. Tickets in the...More

This historic campus auditorium opened in 1913, and seats about 3,500 persons. The most noticeable feature is the bronze pipe organ at the rear of the oval stage. The hall is decorated in soft blue, gray and gold and is a gorgeous sight. Views of...More

I don't believe there are any acoustic "dead spots" at Hill Auditorium. The only thing I would say about the remodel for patrons is that they made the seating so tight it's suffocating. Still, a lovely venue for... More
