Artist’s rendering from TCU School of Music’s promo video
Texas Christian University has started raising money for a four-story-tall music building the size of a city block, the biggest academic facility (i.e., non-sports-related) in TCU history. It’ll have three performance spaces, including an 800-seat performance hall and an opera studio. TCU 360 has the story.
The School of Music Village will take over what’s now a parking lot. The plan is in response to the music school outgrowing its current spaces scattered around seven different buildings. TCU’s Ed Landreth Auditorium had been the home for the Van Cliburn Piano Competition, until Bass Hall came along — but John Giordano, Fort Worth Symphony music director emeritus, says in a promotional video that the new facility will be a performance space for both the Van Cliburn and the FWSO.
