Above the grand foyer, on the third floor, is a charming reception room named for J. Ralph and Patricia Corbett, long-time arts patrons and supporters of Music Hall.
When Music Hall was built, this area of the structure was known as Dexter Hall, named for Julius Dexter who was a civic leader and chair of the Music Hall building committee. The area was originally designated as a place for music recitals and seated about 1,200 people.
In the early 1950s, this area of Music Hall was used by The College of Music both as a classroom and for its radio and television studios.
Today, as seen in the image on the left which was taken during a September, 2012, meeting of SPMH, the room is elegantly appointed and decorated. It features a stage and a dance floor, and seats up to 300. There are also bar and kitchen facilities for parties and banquets.
