An artistic atmosphere, exceptional facilities, and professional event staff will make planning and hosting your event at the BAC a distinctive experience.
The largest room in the building, Spencer Hall, is a 2500 sq. ft. central hall that can accommodate 232 persons. Just across from memorial park. Several hotels and bed and breakfasts within few blocks. Local restaurants within walking distance.

Their double-live album Together in Concert likewise provides my personal platonic Proustian memory: the particular smell of LP cover cardboard trapping the thin plastic sleeves Warner Brothers used during the early '80s.
