WAU Completes New Music Building

KEV_0238_1The building features cutting-edge technology, multiple practice rooms, libraries, smart classrooms, recital rooms and teaching studios and is expected to add enormously to the timber of University life in general and to the richness of its fine arts programs. Its completion is a punctuation mark on a dream which has had its fair share of twists and turns. Originally slated for the front of Sligo Church on the corner of Carroll and Flower Avenues, the building now sits to the rear of the church with several design changes.

Funding for the project came from the State of Maryland, which provided a $2.2 million grant with the understanding that WAU would match that amount and complete the building within a year. The University board voted the $2.2 million, one million of which was donated by philanthropists Leroy and Lois Peters of Howard County, MD.

A formal grand opening of the building is planned for alumni weekend, April 13-15, 2012.
