17 Jan UW–Madison School of Music makes Hamel Music Center its new home
From the second-floor rehearsal space in the new Hamel Music Center, one can gaze out upon the Chazen Museum of Art and East Campus Mall — all part of a University of Wisconsin–Madison arts corridor.
At the busy corner of University Avenue and North Lake Street, UW–Madison’s new $55.8 million music center is part of the Mead Witter School of Music. The venue, which opened in October, includes a 660-seat concert hall and 300-seat recital hall. The facility also has a soundproofed rehearsal space and recording studio that give students and instructors space to compose, practice and perform music.
