Our History

 Located in the “old” Kalamazoo Central High School just south of downtown Kalamazoo, Chenery Auditorium was dedicated in 1924 making it the oldest auditorium in the area.  Each season offers a variety of programs featuring local groups such as the Kalamazoo Symphony Orchestra, Kalamazoo Concert Band, Gilmore Keyboard Festival, Kalamazoo Junior Symphony Orchestra, Ballet Arts Ensemble, Kalamazoo Childrens Chorus, and many others. Chenery continues to host middle school and elementary concerts, as well as performances sponsored by Education for the Arts.

We are working on an archive - keep checking back to see what historical goodies we come up with!
