Originally designed and built for chamber music, the Coolidge Auditorium today reflects the diversity of American music, featuring artists from a wide range of musical genres: classical music of the past and the present, jazz, gospel and spirituals, blues, traditional and contemporary folk, popular songs and musical theater, soul, dance music, bebop, and rock-and-roll.
