Dear Members of Our Campus Community,

We are pleased that our campus has received an allocation of State funding in support of seismic corrections to our Music Building. This is an important opportunity for our campus to make these corrections. Following campus consultation, I am pleased to announce the formation of the Music Building Seismic Project Committee to advise on the planning and development of this important campus project.

The project committee’s role is to ensure that the campus’s programmatic and planning objectives are achieved and that the project proceeds on budget and on schedule. I am pleased that Professor Robert Koenig has graciously agreed to serve as the chair of this committee. Our Design and Construction Services will manage the phases of the project. The committee will be active over the next year and will oversee programming, design, and working drawing phases.

The committee membership is listed below. Thank you to all of the committee members for their commitment of time, wisdom, and expertise to help our campus with this project.
