A recent gift from Joyce Linde (widow of Edward Linde ’62, a real estate developer and philanthropist) is funding the construction of a new music building to encompass the current and future needs of the department in providing rehearsal, educational, and performance spaces. Students and professors in the music department express hopes that the new building will increase awareness of the far-reaching influence of music on MIT as well as serve as a home and a space to nurture their passion for music.
MIT determined the capital cost of the new museum to be $111 million. The museum has to raise half of that amount.
The new building will include spaces for performance, practice, professional-level recording, research, and instruction, as well as a performance lab.
