The Don Wright Faculty of Music is always a centre of activity. With over 300 performances given yearly, countless rehearsals, and endless hours of practice, the Music Building is not only a core academic physical space, it is the setting of memories and emotional connection for students, faculty and alumni.
This fall, there is even more happening, and more to celebrate. We are starting a construction project to enhance our facilities to meet today’s needs. Through our newly renovated and expanded Music Building comes the exciting opportunity to provide learning and performance spaces that match the calibre of our programs, faculty and students.
