Music Center College of Communication and Fine Arts Music Center


operaThere 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‚Äôs commitment to a vibrant performing arts scene in Memphis. 

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.

The Rudi E. Scheidt School of Music has always been an acclaimed environment for nurturing amazing creativity. We have an impressive national and international reputation, but just imagine what more we can do with a facility that is a truer reflection of our stature in the music world. From intimate chamber recitals to large ensemble performances and even full scale opera productions, our diverse offerings will be experienced in a Music Center that is in keeping with our reputation for world-class excellence.
