The Music Center

Concordia’s Music Department home is the Music Center, which contains teaching studios, rehearsal rooms, faculty offices, practice rooms, a music instruction laboratory with sixteen workstations, an electronic piano lab, a recording studio, libraries for ensemble and organ music and the 180-seat recital hall.

Performance Venues

Our large vocal and instrumental ensembles regularly perform in St. John’s sanctuary and Weller auditorium. Our smaller ensembles and soloists regularly perform in the music building's Recital Hall, a beautiful space that contains a Casavant pipe organ and a 7-ft. Steinway grand piano.

Rehearsal Spaces

There are many rehearsal spaces, both large and small, throughout the music building. The choir room, band room, and handbell room are well suited for large ensembles. The smaller practice rooms, most of which contain pianos or organs, are used by individuals and small groups.

Classrooms

Our music classrooms provide learning environments that are outfitted with modern technology and are spacious and comfortable for the students. Our computer lab contains 16 work stations, each with a keyboard and a Mac computer installed with the latest music software.
