The Music Departments (Music Performance, Music Education and Music Studies) moved into the three-story, 130,000 square-foot facility in 1999. This $25.7 million building houses beautiful performance spaces; instrumental, choral, and percussion rehearsal halls; a unified music library; electronic music studios; and outstanding practice facilities. A primary performance space is the wonderfully appointed 350-seat Recital Hall.
The 130-seat Organ Recital Hall provides an intimate atmosphere featuring a stunning 35-rank pipe organ made by the Andover Organ Company of Massachusetts. Larger ensembles perform in UNCG's historic treasure, UNCG Auditorium.
Students and faculty enjoy the comforts of well-equipped performance, rehearsal and lecture halls, and teaching space. Perhaps most important to students is the availability of ample practice rooms - several with computerized V-technology and Coda Technologies Smart Music - and the rich library collection, completely housed in the new music building.
Other features include an acoustics research laboratory, a music education laboratory, a psychoacoustics laboratory, faculty and student lounges, a central recording facility, and a computer laboratory.
The Brown Building
The Brown Building, located at 402 Tate Street, is one building on campus that houses some Theatre facilities and offices. The first floor of Brown includes Brown Theatre as well as faculty offices (occupied by Performance area faculty), a box office, and a seminar/conference room (which also houses a modest if rather chaotically organized Department library of donated scripts and theatre books).
The Taylor Building
The Taylor Building, located at 406 Tate Street, serves as the main stage for UNCG Theatre and North Carolina Theatre for Young People. It includes Taylor Theatre, but also administrative, marketing, and faculty offices, a mail/copier room, a large green room, dressing rooms (also used for stage craft classes in makeup), and offices for graduate students in the performance, directing, and theatre for youth areas.
The McIver Building
The Department of Theatre has substantial space (14,000 square feet) in McIver Building, a multi-purpose University facility housing numerous programs and departments (and located directly behind Taylor and Brown Buildings). Theatre space in McIver includes the department's Costume Shop, storage for costume stock, costume crafts and millinery and wig rooms, props storage, lighting and sound lab classroom, design classroom, computer lab, an office/drafting studio for Design-area graduate students, offices for the Costume Shop staff, and the Paint/Prop Shop (housed in the old foundry attached to McIver).
The Curry Building
Curry Building, which houses several departments and programs, also includes designated spaces for the Department of Theatre, including studio spaces of various sizes used for acting and directing classes, play rehearsals, and, when needed, the largest of these provides an alternative for the department's weekly Workshop (usually presented in Brown Theatre, but moved to Curry when a production scheduled in Brown moves into the phase of technical rehearsals and performances). Curry also includes a large auditorium-style classroom used for the department's Drama Appreciation classes. Nearby Ferguson Building also contains one studio space for the Department of Theatre.
