Architectural Digital Renderings Illustrate Transformation

See the planned new Music Pavilion building expansion and renovations in pictures…

Digital rendering of the new percussion rehearsal room with skylights and acoustic baffle ceiling panels to fill the space with natural light.

Renovation and expansion plans for College of Music facilities include acoustically advanced rehearsal and teaching spaces, additional larger and acoustic practice rooms, a modern and high-tech lecture center, faculty studios and offices, a recording suite as well as indoor and outdoor public gathering spaces.

Private contributions are helping to make this long-time sought after dream a reality as planning moves forward. Beautifully detailed renderings from the project architects provide the clearest picture yet of what this will mean for this student-focused initiative.

The expansion and renovation of MSU’s College of Music facilities was set in motion with a lead gift by MSU alumnus Dr. James K. Billman, Jr.  Additional major support was provided by alumni Byron and Dolores Cook, the late Ruth Charles, and Selma Hollander. In total, $10.1 million has been raised for this brick and mortar project that received “approval to plan” by the MSU Board of Trustees in June 2017.
