Wenatchee Valley College invites the community to the public grand opening of the new Music and Art Center on Sunday, Sept. 30, from 1 to 4 p.m. on the Wenatchee campus.
The celebration will begin with a ribbon cutting at 1:15 p.m. at the Music and Art Center on Fifth Street. Other activities include self-guided tours of the new facility and demonstrations. Light refreshments will be available.
The Music and Art Center features “The Grove,” a 150-seat recital hall; a prominent student art gallery; recording studio; 3D art room; wood and metal shops; large and small rehearsal rooms; several practice rooms; and multi-media, printmaking, drawing, painting and outdoor studios.
Through support of the Washington State Legislature and significant local donors including the Icicle Fund, construction of the Music and Art Center was completed in the span of 12 months. The project fostered partnerships for improving the quality of art and music education in the Wenatchee Valley, including a partnership between WVC and local employer Alcoa Wenatchee Works to establish the new digital design program. The new program combines industrial technology and art to create a training program for students interested in careers in advanced manufacturing and entertainment design. The facility will also serve as a practice and rehearsal venue for community groups including the Wenatchee Valley Symphony and the Columbia Chorale.
