NEW MUSIC CENTER BEGINS CONSTRUCTION
The Department of Music's $52 million Music Center begins contruction Jan. 2 on Russell Lane, in the heart of UCSD's Arts District. A 400-seat recital hall designed by world-renowned acoustician Cyril Harris will be the centerpiece. Designed by LMN Architects of Seattle, the three-story, 46,880-square-foot complex will also include a flexible "black box" theatre, a 150-seat lecture/recital hall, state-of-the-art computer and sound technology, professional recording facilities, and a central courtyard that doubles as performance space; as well as new offices for faculty and staff. LMN and Harris are the same team responsible for Seattle's acclaimed Benaroya Hall, home of the Seattle Symphony Orchestra. The Department of Music will move from its current home in Mandeville Center. When the building opens in early 2009, the Department will host a special inaugural concert series.
