BYU Announces Construction of New Music Building
Music Building will house the BYU School of Music’s performance and academic space
Construction of the new School of Music building began June 15, 2020. Located at the south end of the parking lot east of the BYU Law School, the new building will take two years to complete with a planned completion date of Fall Semester 2022. The new building will house the BYU School of Music’s performance and academic space.
“We are thrilled with the beginning of construction on this new building that we hope will bless students and the community at large,” said Ed Adams, Dean of the College of Fine Arts and Communications. “The Church has a long history of supporting music and the arts, and this new building will expand upon the university’s commitment to producing inspiring and uplifting art.”
The 170,000-square-foot Music Building will have four levels and feature more mid-sized spaces for practice and recitals, including practice rooms located on the upper floor. The cornerstone of the new building will be a 1000-seat concert hall built in the vineyard style where the performance space is centralized with tiers of audience members rising above them.
