The Rachel M. Schlesinger Concert Hall and Arts Center includes the breathtaking 981-seat Mary Collier Baker Theater, beautiful glass-enclosed Wachovia Forum, the intimate Margaret W. and Joseph L. Fisher Art Gallery and Internet-ready seminar rooms. The variety of spaces can be configured to host any event, from board meetings, product launches and keynote speeches to corporate dinners, and fundraising galas. Spacious, tastefully appointed lobby areas on the first and second floors of the Center provide the perfect spot for pre-function receptions, meeting breaks, dessert buffets and much more. We are very proud of this Center and believe once you see it, you'll share in our excitement.
The Schlesinger Center has 5-foot rounds that will seat 8 people, with oversize banquet chairs, 6' x 36" and 6' x 18" rectangular tables all included in the rental fees.

"The Center is a wonderful, unique, intimate setting for a reception because it kept everyone together and everything is right there. The Forum didn't need a lot of dressing because it was so beautiful! Our guests were very impressed."
