Soleri Amphitheater

GCC’s Soleri Amphitheater Comes Alive with Music

The amphitheater, designed by famed architect Paolo Soleri, at Glendale Community College will once again be filled with music. On February 28th, at 7 p.m., the GCC Performing Arts Department will present an evening of music at the recently remodeled amphitheater.

Community members, students, faculty and staff are welcome to attend this free event. Guests can bring their own food and non-alcoholic beverages, plus Simons Hot Dogs food truck will be selling food and beverages starting at 6:30 p.m. The venue features a lawn area so attendees can set out blankets and bring lawn/camp chairs.

The evening will include performances from the following GCC musical groups:

  • WW5
  • Clarinet Quartet
  • Trumpet Ensemble
  • Chamber Singers
  • A cappella Ensemble
  • Percussion Ensemble
  • Guitar Studio Soloist
  • Mariachi Ensemble
  • Jazz Combo
  • Pop Ensemble
  • Brass Quintet

Completed in 1996, the Soleri Amphitheater was funded by the Evening Student Government with additional backing coming from the Fine Arts Commission. Recently GCC allocated funds to update the infrastructure and improve the landscaping and hardscaping in and around the venue.

The Soleri Amphitheater is located on the northwest corner of the Glendale Community College main campus, next to the GCC football stadium. The GCC campus is located at 59th Avenue and Olive. Ample parking is located immediately to the north and the east of the amphitheater.
