Opened in 2015, the Patrick G. and Shirley W. Ryan Center for the Musical Arts is situated on the lakefront and integrates completely with Regenstein Hall of Music, with two connections between the buildings on each of Regenstein’s three levels. The Ryan Center’s three performance venues include the Mary B. Galvin Recital Hall, Shirley Welsh Ryan Opera Theater, and David and Carol McClintock Choral and Recital Room.
Designed by Chicago-based architectural firm Goettsch Partners, the design features a limestone base supporting an exterior that is primarily glass, taking maximum advantage of the site’s lakefront location and views of the Chicago skyline.
