A New Chapter

With a 1,000-seat vineyard-style concert hall, designed to optimize acoustics and line of sight to performers, the new 170,000-square-foot Music Building will be the first of its kind in the Intermountain West. Expected to be completed by the end of Fall 2022, the state-of-the-art facility offers increased space for practice and recitals and will be a fitting home for the BYU School of Music to continue its tradition of producing inspiring and uplifting art.
