The $3.6 million renovation and build-out of the new Musictech College of Music and Recording Arts in Saint Paul, Minn., officially opened on January 22, 2002. Its 60,000 square feet will more than double the recording, performing, production and teaching space the college once occupied in Minneapolis.
Located at the former Science Museum East Building (also known as the Arts & Science Center), the new Musictech College will contain a 300-seat auditorium, 10,000 square feet of recording studios, a music library, 12 listening stations, six production suites, 12 practice rooms and two state-of-the-art digital laboratories. An 8,000-square-foot student commons area and courtyard, built in the penthouse of the original Arts & Science building, will have an informal performance space for student musicians.
