the Project study

This project marks the first time in the Center’s 90-year history that it has had a centralized facility for music education. For years, students practiced in several disjointed areas of campus. This new facility offers young artists year-round access to space for rehearsals, performances, and classes in a contiguous location for the first time. Each classroom virtually connects musicians from across the world to broaden the student learning experience.

The building links to the Frohlich Piano & Percussion Building and its Corson Auditorium, providing 25 teaching studios, 2 rehearsal halls, and 10 practice studios.

Special features included double 12” CMU Walls for sound isolation and over 190,000 sf of acoustical insulation, a terraced outdoor amphitheater, 8” Precast Floor Decks, and extensive video projection and real-time video and audio links.Wood grain composite exterior panel systems blend in with the campus’ natural features.
