PULLMAN, Wash. — Washington State University held rededication ceremonies today (April 4) for the Kimbrough Music Building, marking the completion of an $8.9 million remodeling project.
The project included a general education lecture hall, music listening library, recording studio, rehearsal room, an electronic piano laboratory and other improvements. Equipment totaling $1.1 million will provide technical support, professional audio recording and electronic music composition hardware and software, expansion and selective replacement of the acoustic piano inventory, several percussion instruments and computer technology.
“This entire Kimbrough Building is the kind of facility that our music program has needed to ensure its continued growth and success,” said Barbara Couture, dean of Liberal Arts at WSU. “It leaves our music program well-positioned to meet the growing student participation in music programs at all levels.”
Donors for the project included The Allen Foundation for Music, Robert and Marion Parker, Jack and Normalu Cooper, and Davis and Hosch Music in Spokane.
