Hemmle Recital Hall is the primary performance space of the Texas Tech University School of Music. Dedicated in 1977 and renamed in 1979 after Dr. Gene Hemmle, chairman of the Music Department from 1949-1973, the 541-seat hall is home to over 200 concerts and recitals throughout the year. The Zeta Sigma Chapter of Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia has a long history of devotion to Hemmle Recital Hall, having volunteered many hours to maintenance and operation of the hall since its opening. In January 2012, the School of Music hired an additional staff member to acquire the position of Hemmle Recital Hall Manager. Expanding upon Sinfonia's tradition of dedication and service, the current Hemmle Crew student workforce consists of fourteen students, listed below. An asterisk indicates membership in Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia. Crew members are identifiable by name tags, should you need assistance during a performance. Sean Anderson, Crew Chief Katie Morris, Assistant Crew Chief Courtney Hood, Assistant Crew Chief Clark Preston, Assistant Crew Chief Eddie Allen Devon Curtis Madeline Garcia Karisma Mendoza Ross Reinhart Meagan Spencer Tiffany Sumrow Mia Zamora ************ Hemmle Crew Mission Statement: TTU Hemmle Crew is committed to carrying out and promoting the mission of the TTU School of Music by setting the standard in professionalism and service. It is our priority to ensure the most positive performance experiences for our students, faculty, and patrons through diligent efforts both on and off the stage. It is our duty to maintain clean, safe, and accessible performance space and equipment at all times. We take pride in our service to others and our support of the performing arts. ************ TTU School of Music Mission Statement: The Texas Tech University School of Music provides a professional environment that stimulates the highest standards of excellence in music education, research, performance, creativity, and service. ************ Parking: Patrons may park in the "Band Lot" (Lot R11). Parking is free on weekends and after 8:00 PM on weekdays; however, the Park and Pay System must be utilized on weekdays before 8:00 PM. Parking fees M-F are $1.50/hour. For more information about Texas Tech University's Park and Pay System, click the following link: http://www.parking.ttu.edu/students/park-pay-system. Parking Services may be visible at the Band Lot entrance to facilitate parking at larger events and will be happy to answer any questions you may have. The School of Music is not responsible for parking tickets received. ************ Photography & Recording Devices: On behalf of our performers, we ask that you refrain from using flash photography, still or video cameras and/or audio recording devices, except as explicitly authorized, during any performance in Hemmle Recital Hall. Unauthorized use is an infringement of TTU copyright policy, impedes our broadcast and recording, and represents a safety hazard for performers. Additionally, it is a distraction to those around you. We sincerely appreciate your consideration. ************ Cell Phones: Please ensure that your cell phone is silenced during the performance. A ringing cell phone and the glow of a phone screen in a dark performance hall can be extremely distracting to those sitting near you, not to mention extremely disrespectful to the performers who wish to share their music with you. If you really must check your phone, please step out of the recital hall during intermission to do so. Some performing groups may at times specifically request patron support and interaction via social media outlets during a performance. Patrons wishing to participate are asked to sit in the balcony to avoid distracting patrons not participating. The request for social media participation during a performance will be made prior to the start of the event. If you have questions or need clarification regarding use of cell phones or other electronic devices, ask an usher at the door. ************ Entrances to the Hall: Hemmle Recital Hall has two public entrances. If you arrive after the performance has begun, our ushers will kindly direct you to the upstairs entrance and ask that you sit in the balcony seating. This is to avoid distracting performers and other patrons. ************ Food and Drink: Unlike a movie theater, there is no food or drink allowed in Hemmle Recital Hall. Ushers will be more than happy to mark your drink with your name and keep it outside the hall if necessary, but we request that you leave all food and drink at home. ************ Accessible Seating: Hemmle Recital Hall has 541 seats, including one row of ADA-compliant seating on the main entrance level. There are eight spaces that are accessible to wheelchairs and scooters. Additional chairs may be requested. Hemmle ushers will be stationed at the main doors to assist with any special seating requirements and facilitate seating at larger events. Questions regarding Hemmle Recital Hall may be directed by e-mail to the Hall Manager: music.events@ttu.edu. To be added to the Musical Notes mailing list which announces ALL upcoming events of the Texas Tech University School of Music and The College of Visual & Performing Arts, send an e-mail to benjamin.robinette@ttu.edu.
