about Ambassador Auditorium
Known as the “Carnegie Hall of the West,” Ambassador Auditorium hosted 20 seasons of the world’s best musicians and performers from 1974 to 1995. Its magnificent walls have reverberated with the sound of applause from 2.5 million concertgoers at over 2,500 concerts, while achieving a world-renowned reputation as one of the world’s finest performance halls.
Since opening in 1974 when the Vienna Symphony Orchestra performed at its inauguration, the acoustically perfect auditorium hosted such famed performers as Luciano Pavarotti, Pearl Bailey, Yo-Yo Ma, and Vladimir Horowitz. After playing the auditorium, many of these artists concluded the acoustics exceeded those of Carnegie Hall.
Parking is available at $10 at the Wells Fargo lot (off Terrace Drive) and the Ambassador lot (off South St. John). Handicapped parking is available at the Ambassador lot.
