The John and Ruth Rhinehart Music Center

The acoustically superb Rhinehart Music Center, designed by Fort Wayne-based architectural firm Schenkel Schultz, features the 1,600-seat Auer Performance Hall, the 250-seat Rhinehart Recital Hall, rehearsal halls, studios, practice rooms, offices, and classrooms for the IPFW Department of Music and community arts partners.

The Omnibus Lecture Series is one of many occasions for members of the community to enjoy the IPFW campus. IPFW offers event venues and meeting spaces as well as personal development opportunities, Division I athletics, theatre and music performances, and art exhibitions. IPFW strives to make the campus a resource for all of Greater Fort Wayne.

Find out more about community opportunities at IPFW on the Events Calendar. Businesses and organizations interested in developing partnerships with IPFW may call at 260-481-6105.

The Rhinehart Music Center is available to host events, concerts, meetings, and receptions.
