Community Music Center’s Mission District Branch Concert Hall is available for rent to the public for music-related concerts and events, rehearsals, and sound recording. Renovated in 2006, the concert hall is wheelchair accessible and opens onto the courtyard of an Italianate Victorian house dating back to the 1880s. There is a balcony at the rear of the hall, where there is also a sound recording booth. The auditorium seats roughly 130.
Acoustically excellent, the concert hall houses a Yamaha CFX Concert Collection Grand Piano on stage and a Baldwin six-foot grand piano on the floor. This makes the hall perfect for recordings and music centered events. It features a hard wood dance floor and a proscenium stage, both refurbished in 2021. A concert manager will be there to open and close the auditorium, handle hall and stage setup, and help with any of your needs during the event. Our hall is also equipped with a professional quality lighting and sound system.
Please Note: Due to ongoing public health concerns regarding COVID-19, CMC concert hall rental is not available until further notice. We continue to follow protocols from the CDC and work closely with California and San Francisco Public Health officials in outlining our reopening procedures, and are working hard to prioritize the safety and wellbeing of our students, faculty, staff, and community in all scenarios.

There are two restrooms adjacent to the concert hall stage and one wheelchair-accessible restroom adjacent to the courtyard. The building also houses a green room which includes a sink, refrigerator and small electric stove. There are six 3′ x 6′ conference tables, each seating six to eight.
Serving food or beverages may be permitted, but only with the express written consent of Community Music Center. Smoking is not permitted in the hall, or anywhere on CMC property.
The availability of the hall is contingent on regular Community Music Center use of the space. The hall is available for events from 2:30pm to 10pm on Fridays, 2:30 to 10pm on Saturdays, and 9am to 5pm on Sundays. The hall is also available for live streaming events and recording sessions.
