UC San Diego's Department of Music

March 23, 2009

  After weeks of packing and in the process discovering ancient relics from more than forty years of life in the Department of Music, the Department of Music has moved into the new Conrad Prebys Music Center on Russell Lane near Gilman Drive.

Department staff occupied new offices in late February, and faculty are in the process of moving into theirs, many of which double as acoustically refined studios. As we acclimate, we are inspired every day by the new building's beautifully refined details: performance spaces including the Conrad Prebys Concert Hall, a flexible 'black box,' and a bright red recital/lecture hall (at left, with cartwheel); a percussion wing for Steven Schick and his fellow red fish blue fish; an expansive orchestra rehearsal room; a landscaped courtyard with amphitheatre-like seating; long outdoor benches custom formed from steel; and, of course, spanky new staff offices where we are newly energized by warm natural light, wide carpeted hallways, elegant dark wood office furniture where everything can be stowed away out of sight; and a large employee lounge that's perfect for a St. Patty's lunch or Friday potluck. Our new ergonomic chairs have undoubtedly increased productivity around here!

As we ramp up for our opening concerts May 8 and May 9, we invite you to take a closer look at our beautiful new home. You are bound to see some very happy faces here in our new neighborhood, near the striking new Student Center and the Visual Arts building, and a short walk away from Price Student Center.
