Wentz Concert Hall Stage

Wentz Concert Hall is hailed as a gem- the newest of North Central College’s performing arts buildings, the Wentz Concert Hall is ideal for lectures, recording, and musical performances of any kind. The Wentz Concert Hall features a 411 seat main floor and a 206 seat balcony. Located just east of downtown Naperville, Wentz Concert Hall is at the corner of Chicago Avenue and Ellsworth Street. It is in prime location to serve the Western Chicagoland area. 

Wentz Concert Hall can be “tuned” through the motorized extension and retraction of sound-absorbing curtains. Two massive sound chambers, one on each side of the stage and invisible to the audience, enhance the audio characteristics and allow sound to bounce off multiple planes as it is directed to the audience. The Hall seats a total of 617 with 411 seats on the main floor and 206 in the balcony. There is an additional 120 seats in the choral balcony.

The building is located at 171 E Chicago Avenue.
