Program Information

A property of the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, the 245,000-square-foot RiverCenter is a visually stunning blend of the past and the present, mixing the brick and ironwork of the area's historic buildings with a modern multi-level glass and steel façade. Its spacious entrance is graced by a tall glass "curtain" wall and a soaring staircase. RiverCenter's state-of-the-art facilities include the 2,000-seat Bill Heard Theatre, the center's main venue and home to the Columbus Symphony Orchestra. Featuring orchestra, mezzanine and balcony seating, the hall is designed to meet the complex technical needs of attractions such as Broadway shows, symphonic concerts, dance performances, pop concerts, lectures, and conferences.
