Concordia Music Center

Inspiring the faculty and students of Concordia University, the renovation and addition of the Concordia Music Center brings light to the quad and provides new resources for the nationally accredited Department of Music. The 46,500 square foot addition with tall, linear windows and modern precast panels is a $17.5 million project with state-of-the-art technology and adjustable acoustics to enhance the musical experience.

Designed in association with HDR, the renovation and addition contains 22 practice rooms,13 teaching studios, a recording studio, and space dedicated to music therapy. Additionally, a Black Box theater provides a first-class experience for performances. Flexible spaces allow new programs to be offered by the University, including a Bachelor of Arts with an emphasis in music recording techniques.

Sinclair Hille Architects has a longstanding relationship with Concordia University and has enjoyed working alongside their leadership to enrich learning environments on their campus. In 2017 we also had the pleasure of designing the Dunklau Center located just southeast of the music building. For more information about the Dunklau Center, please visit our projects page.

I appreciate the ability of the Sinclair Hille Team to listen when designing a project for our campus. They have a great design process to engage faculty and staff to explore ideas, dream and then share their recommendations.
