Gain professional training on the only campus dedicated to the arts in Missouri: you’ll do that here.

Southeast is proud of their state-of-the-art facilities for its students to receive the most unique experience while performing and in concert. 

Donald C. Bedell Performance Hall 

Adjacent to the River Campus seminary building is the Cultural Arts Center which contains the Donald C. Bedell Performance Hall. The Bedell Performance Hall is a state-of-the-art performance space where musicals, plays, dance concerts, and large instrumental and vocal music concerts are performed. This 950-seat performance hall has a professional-sized orchestra pit that can accommodate up to 20 musicians. 

Robert F. and Gertrude L. Shuck Music Recital Hall 

The Robert F. and Gertrude L. Shuck Music Recital Hall was transformed from a seminary chapel into a 205-seat musical performance space. The beautiful space, which retains the historic stained glass windows from the former chapel, is acoustically “dressed” for mid-sized musical performances and includes its own “green room” below. 

Practice Rooms

Practice rooms are available to students who are enrolled in either applied music or music ensembles. All rooms will be locked and entry can only be gained through the use of a practice room access card issued by Beverly Delph, administrative assistant in the Department of Music. There will be one room for piano majors only, one organ practice room, and two rooms set aside for percussion practice.  

Practice rooms are not available during winter break. 

Access cards are available through Beverly Delph in room 254 of the seminary building on the River Campus for a fee of $5 which is charged to the student account. Cards which are lost will be replaced for an additional $5 fee.  

Practice rooms in Brandt Music Hall on the Main Campus are unlocked, however an ‘After Hours’ pass is needed to access the building after 8 p.m. Monday-Friday and on weekends. An ‘After Hours’ pass may be obtained from Beverly Delph or from an ensemble director.
