The Kuersteiner Building, completed in 1948, is a four-story structure that is connected to the Wiley L. Housewright Music Building, which was completed spring 1979. The College of Music also occupies a number of offices in the Longmire Building. These buildings house the administrative offices; teaching studios; classrooms; band, orchestra, choral, opera, and ensemble rehearsal halls; music education and music therapy research laboratories; electronic music studios; ethnomusicology studios; early music studios; concert and recital halls; the Warren D. Allen Music Library; the Center for Music Research; and 130 practice rooms. All music facilities are structurally designed for maximum effectiveness.

Concert Facilities

The Opperman Music Hall is a 430-seat recital hall located in the Kuersteiner Building. The facility is used for faculty and student recitals, concerts, and lectures.

One of the major music libraries of the southeastern United States, the music library provides a pleasant setting conducive to the efficient utilization of the extensive collection of over 160,000 scores, sound recordings, videos, books, periodicals, and microforms. Housed in 18,000 square feet of space with comfortable furnishings and excellent sound equipment, the music library provides students with impressive resources and surroundings for the pursuit of their studies. Three librarians and other library staff are on duty to assist students and faculty in their use of the library.
