During the permitting process, Morley Builders prepared the buildings and site for the launch of the project, including cordoning off active spaces from construction work. The project is now underway. Key construction phases are outlined below.
Why are we building Common Ground? In this time when so much divides us, learning, performing, and enjoying music provides substantive opportunities to leave those divisions behind, to forge connections, to find common ground.
This project will transform our campus and enhance the learning experience for our students and the entire community. It encompasses the replacement of a single story building with a two-story learning center. It introduces an outdoor amphitheater and renovates our administrative wing to include new reception and waiting areas. Learn more about the project and watch a walkthrough of the plans on our campaign website.
