U of W's Collegiate gets new performance space

  • Print

The University of Winnipeg Collegiate will be opening a new performing arts space next fall.

It will enable high school students to take music lessons and earn credits on its downtown campus, said president Lloyd Axworthy.

Bryce Hall will be renovated from January through May 2014, creating a modern, acoustically-treated suite of 10 studios, a large classroom and office space to accommodate the music program.

The Collegiate will use the large, newly constructed music room for its ensembles and classes. The new 4,800-square-foot facility will cover two floors and is to be shared by both the Collegiate and the Manitoba Conservatory of Music and Arts, which will relocate from its current space in the Exchange District, Axworthy said.

The expanded curriculum will begin next fall with offerings in instrumental music and choral music to Collegiate students in grades 9 through 12. Eventual plans include the addition of musical programs such as concert band as well as jazz, choral music, and wind ensembles. Dual credits in music are also being planned for future.
