This article, originally published by the Roanoke Times, describes how leaders of Liberty University’s School of Music are excitedly awaiting the completion of a new two-building complex on campus. The academic wing of the School of Music opened in May 2016 and the adjoining performing arts center will open a year later.
Academically, the school encompasses the Center for Music & the Performing Arts as well as the Center for Music & Worship – brought together for the first time in the University’s history. The music school expects about 1,200 students will use the building, including about 850 to 900 on campus and the rest online.
“We have needed facilities for years,” said Vernon Whaley, dean of the School of Music. “I think it is going to give our students a place where they can study and learn and create and experience music in an expressive way, in an incredibly productive environment. We really think we can develop a music community here that will be as good as any place in the country.”
