Reynolds Auditorium is both aesthetically and acoustically pleasing. The Auditorium opened in 1924 in memoriam to Richard J. Reynolds by his wife Katharine Smith Reynolds. It was restored in 2002 through the efforts of the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County school system and the tireless fund-raising efforts of the Friends of Reynolds Auditorium.

Built on a rise overlooking the city, the Auditorium has a striking main entrance, with six massive columns crowned by Corinthian capitals on the portico. The lobby is enhanced by reproductions of three classical Greek marble sculptures, and the floor is finished in a tile pattern of marble and green slate. All seats have been refurbished to provide generous legroom.
