Colburn Center Groundbreaking Ceremony and Celebration

Join us on April 5

We are delighted to be taking the next steps on our ambitious project to expand world-class training and performance opportunities for the next generation, by breaking ground on the Frank Gehry-designed Colburn Center.  

The Colburn Center will dramatically increase the School’s facilities for music and dance, provide much-needed performance space in a mid-sized hall for the region’s established and emerging performing arts organizations, and will create the largest concentration of Frank Gehry buildings in the world.  

Our Groundbreaking Ceremony and Celebration takes place on Friday, April 5 and we hope that you can join us for this historic event.
