When my son and I toured the New England Conservatory of Music a few years back, we were very disappointed to find its facilities in dilapidated condition with some classrooms visibly moldy and equipment that were clearly outdated. As soon as we got back from the tour, however, I read an announcement of the planning of a new building construction, the first one since 60 years ago at NEC. Well, I haven't seen the new building personally, but it apparently opened this past September:
Less than two weeks ago, Princeton held a multi-day celebration of the opening of their new Lewis Center for the Arts Complex, which includes a new 3-story Music Building:
Then, today, not to be outdone, Harvard announced their own plans to build a new 9,000 square-foot arts building that will house "an audio recording studio, sound editing stations, and performance spaces":
Having an easy and convenient access to great music facilities could play a significant role in any students' thoughts when making a college or conservatory decision. My son and I for one was so turned off by our experience at NEC that, although other factors played into our decision making, he ended up not even auditioning for it.
With such exciting new music facilities going up, I thought it'd be very helpful to create a thread where we can list any new music facilities that are either being planned or already opened recently. My knowledge is limited to these three, along with Stanford's Bing Concert Hall which opened in 2013 (I'd consider it "recent"):
