Located between the historic McCormick Row House District and the North Halsted Avenue, the School of Music is comprised of three buildings – Music North, Music Center and Music South. This arrangement provides continuity for the School of Music facilities along the North Halsted corridor.
Bulley & Andrews is serving as construction manager for the latest enhancement to the Lincoln Park Campus. The School of Music building anchors the complex, housing a 535-seat concert hall, a 150-seat large recital hall, and a 80-seat small recital hall. Student rehearsal rooms, practice rooms, a jazz studio, a percussion suite and an ensemble room are among the spaces planned for the upper floors of the building.
Music North (formerly the Music School building) will continue to serve as the School of Music’s administrative hub, housing renovated faculty offices, admissions, teaching studios, seminar rooms and classrooms on its existing three levels. The Music North building will be further improved through an enclosed link to the new Music Center building. Music South (formerly the Chapel building) will be substantially reprogrammed to accommodate an Opera Rehearsal Hall and its supporting spaces. Music South will also be connected to the Music Center building through an enclosed walkway.
