A sizable concert hall that offers diverse programming atop scenic Nob Hill.. In Short Nestled in the heart of this popular section of the city, the Nob Hill Masonic Center is a modern fortress of white marble. The auditorium stage has hosted everything from private meetings to classic rock icon Van Morrison. The spacious auditorium accommodates more than 3,000 people and features lectures, special events, and a wide spectrum of concerts. Although sight lines are very good from almost anywhere, the austere confines feel a bit cavernous, and the acoustics can be spotty in some of the more peripheral seating.
