The work, led by SLAM Collaborative, integrates the music departments, student life and athletics within 750,000sf of three new buildings attached to Notre Dame’s iconic 1930s football stadium. Because of the enormous success of ND’s DeBartolo Center for Performing Arts (completed 2004), MCH was specifically requested by Notre Dame’s music faculty to be engaged with the architects on the two principal music spaces in the South Building. The recital hall will accommodate 140+ patrons while the main music rehearsal room will serve a variety of rehearsal and informal performance functions.
Variable acoustics system are provided in each of the two spaces in order to increase their flexibility for different music genres. Opening of the entire project is expected within months.
