Historic Facility

Dubbed "The Temple of Music," Weenona Poindexter Music Hall (1905) is the preeminent music conservatory in the state of Mississippi.  The music hall completed renovations in November of 2012 to the tune of $14 million. The building features the 250-seat Connie Kossen Auditorium in the center of the building, individual practice rooms, a grand piano practice parlor, and a state-of-the-art audio and video recording suite.
