A New Destination for the Arts

There is an overall feeling that the new Music Center at the University of Memphis will be much more than a venue. It will be a destination where the arts will be heard, seen and felt. Fans of every musical genre, from all over the region, will come together for the enjoyment of music. The Center will allow much larger productions to come to our campus. The Center will allow us to continue to build upon our relationships with other arts programs in the City to host their performances on our campus, reflecting the University's commitment to a vibrant performing arts scene in Memphis.

Artists and Audiences ARE Forever
Changed By Your Support

Due to the age and design of the current music building, the Rudi E. Scheidt School of Music productions and community programs are limited in scope. We will finally be able to address issues such as lack of stage space, seating and acoustically appropriate spaces. A new Music Center at the University of Memphis will give our aspiring students what they deserve. Since we are the only doctoral degree-granting program in music in Tennessee, this facility will help us celebrate the innovative spirit of our students and continue to attract high-caliber talent to our University.

Now is the Time

Enthusiasm continues to grow for this important project. This is a rare opportunity like never before. Over 200 friends, faculty and staff of the Rudi E. Scheidt School of Music have already contributed towards our goal. We are sincerely grateful to our supporters and are confident that their investments will carry on the legacy of the Scheidt School of Music to continue to attract world-class students and faculty for years to come. The new Music Center has legacy opportunities for you, your family or to honor a loved one. We will help you find the perfect way to be a part of the future of music at the University of Memphis.
