Fractured Atlas Sign in/up

Completed in 1981, this flagship theatre of Texas Performing Arts is the largest in Austin, with seating for 2,900. The Nancy Lee and Perry R. Bass Concert Hall boasts a vast stage, an orchestra pit capable of holding 100 musicians, dressing rooms to accommodate more than 100 performers, computerized lighting, advanced sound and rigging systems, and a mammoth backstage area complete with workshops for carpentry, costumes, painting, metalwork and props. Ranking among the finest performance spaces in the country both in size and accoutrements, it is no wonder that Bass Concert Hall attracts the world’s greatest performers and full-scale productions.

With the recent renovations, Bass Concert Hall has added over 7000 square feet of new lobby space. In an effort to provide patrons with a unique experience, we are offering certain areas for private party rentals. One of the most dramatic locations is the outdoor patio on the 6th floor, with views of the LBJ fountain and the Tower, creating a sensational spot for your group to enjoy.

From private pre-performance receptions to full service multi-course dinners, Texas Performing Arts can accommodate any size group. Our on-site event coordinator can help you plan all the details from catering to specialty rentals.
