Thanks to nearly $8.5 million in commitments, preliminary plans detail a $35 million project that includes a new 35,000-square-foot Music Pavilion and 8,500 square feet of renovated space.
The new Music Pavilion will increase the net square footage of the Music complex by 40 percent.
The university will provide 50 percent of the cost of the proposed $35 million project. The college will proceed with additional fundraising efforts for the remaining $9 million in gifts still needed to fund the project in full.

College of MUSIC: past–PREsent–future
“Improved music facilities have long been on the university’s list of needs. With 550 students working toward music degrees and more than 2,000 additional students participating in ensembles and classes, the college has outgrown current spaces.” – Dean Jim Forger
