About Denis Arnold Hall
The Denis Arnold Hall is the largest room in the Music Faculty of the University of Oxford and is used for lectures, research seminars, workshops, recitals and conferences.
It has a state-of-the-art A/V system with touchscreen control. It also has audio and video ties to the recording studio. Instruments usually available in the hall include a Steinway Grand Piano (recently refurbished) and a selection of large percussion instruments.
The hall is named after Denis Midgley Arnold, a British musicologist and Heather Professor of Music at Oxford University from 1975. He was best known for his editing of The New Oxford Companion to Music (1983, Oxford University Press), which under his editorial leadership, grew to a two-volume work of some 2000 pages.
