Dear Members of the Department of Music Community,
I write today to express deep sadness and outrage at the recent rise in violence against Asians, Asian Americans, and Pacific Islanders...
The New Music Building at the Lewis Arts Complex has officially been renamed the Effron Music Building.
The three-story building includes a two-story, 3,500-square-foot, acoustically isolated Lee Rehearsal Room with soaring 30-foot ceilings and equipment for professional-quality audio recordings. An 800-square-foot jazz studies studio is one of several specialized teaching facilities in the Effron Music Building. A large number of acoustically advanced practice rooms and teaching studios are located on the second and third levels, featuring brand new pianos from Steinway & Sons. The practice rooms and teaching studios are suspended from the roof structure to assure sound isolation. Each teaching studio has room for a teacher, student and up to two grand pianos. Several rooms also include audio recording and playback systems.
The Princeton University Orchestra, Princeton University Sinfonia, Jazz at Princeton University, piano lessons, large-instrument lessons, and some small-instrument lessons are housed in the Effron Music Building. Graduate programs, academic classes, the Princeton University Glee Club, student ensembles, vocal lessons, and some small-instrument lessons continue to take place in the Woolworth Center.
