* CDEI Presents: The Pulsera Project

* Music Conservatory Announces Full Funding of Wheeler Concert Hall Renovations

On Tuesday evening, the Music Conservatory announced the full funding of Wheeler Concert Hall and the Krannert Hall of Art and Music gallery. The exciting news was delivered to the audience at the Ensemble Showcase in Neu Chapel as well as a live stream on the University’s Facebook and Instagram accounts. 

In February, UE announced the creation of the UE Music Conservatory (formerly the Department of Music) as well as plans to renovate Wheeler Concert Hall and the Krannert Hall of Art and Music gallery. The entire project was funded through philanthropy, and a total of $3 million was raised in less than six months. 

Wheeler Concert Hall experienced a water line break in the fall of 2019, causing the space to be unavailable for concerts and recitals. With this fully funded project, the Music Conservatory will now have a first-class concert hall that includes acoustical improvements and arrangeable seating. UE will also add a handicap-accessible entrance to Wheeler Concert Hall. Additionally, improvements to the Krannert Hall of Art and Music gallery will create a more welcoming and open space to visitors and future gallery events.

The University would like to thank all the donors and Friends of UE Music for their ongoing support and making the renovation project possible. Interested individuals can still name a seat in Wheeler Concert Hall for $2,500 if the donation is made before October 31. To make a gift, please visit uealumnionline.com/HaveASeat
