The TSU Performing Arts Center is the home of the Department of Music and the Department of Communications. The facility houses a large state-of-the-art digitally controlled theater and music hall, a mid-sized acoustic recital hall, the University’s television studio and editing suite complex, the TSU radio station, nine smart classrooms, two computer laboratories, professors’ teaching studios/offices, large and small practice studios, and rehearsal spaces necessary to serve these two performing arts departments. A computer-controlled access system allows music students to utilize secured practice areas and laboratories at night and on weekends in order to practice and prepare for classes. Additionally, two other auditoriums on-campus are used for ensemble performances. Tennessee State University shares the LP Field stadium with the Tennessee Titans of the National Football League, and the TSU Aristocrat of Bands marching band performs there at all home TSU games and at select NFL games. Ensembles within the Department of Music perform at a variety of facilities and venues in Nashville and throughout the United States.
