Dieterle Vocal Arts Center

Formerly a women's gymnasium for the university, the Dieterle Vocal Arts Center (DVAC) opened in January 1995 and is home to the Voice, Opera, Choral and Accompanying departments.

Facilities include:

  • 19 faculty studios
  • 3 private coaching rooms
  • 2 warm-up rooms
  • 100-seat choral rehearsal room
  • Choral library
  • Nippert Rehearsal Studio
  • Italo Tajo Archive Room

The Nippert Rehearsal Studio is a grand opera-scale rehearsal space with dressing rooms and technical support. It doubles as a performance venue for workshops and concerts.

DVAC is the result of the gifts of Mr. and Mrs. Louis Nippert.
