IMG_0059HBU’s Morris Cultural Arts Center has already become the home for many area schools for graduations, seasonal programs, and instrumental and vocal performances. Dance schools are utilizing the the Linda & Archie Dunham Theater for their recitals, and community groups, including the Houston Chamber Choir, Houston Civic Symphony and the Houston Symphony, have performed in the venue as well.  The Mary Ann & Bruce Belin Chapel & Recital Hall is used for voice recitals and special guest speakers.  The McNair Hall is the perfect place for a reception or banquet.
