From football games to formal concerts, Texas A&M has a rich musical tradition, one that includes a wide variety of performances and covers a diverse set of genres. The new Music Activities Center will accommodate more than 1,300 student musicians who participate in the bands, choirs, and orchestras at Texas A&M University. It contains a practice field that is a mirror image of Kyle Field for the band to perform and practice on. The new Music Activities Center will contain the following musical activities: The Fightin’ Texas Aggie Band, Wind Symphony, Symphonic Winds, Symphonic Band, Concert Band, Sponsored Student Music Ensembles, Jazz Ensemble I and II, Aggieland Orchestra, Singing Cadets, Century Singers, Women’s Chorus, Chamber Orchestra, and Philharmonic Orchestra.
It has soundproof practice rooms, ample musical locker storage for instruments, four new rehearsal halls with state-of-the-art acoustics. There are also opportunities within the building to tell students, alumni and visitors about the proud traditions of the music organizations at Texas A&M. The new Music Activities Center will replace the current Adams Band Building and Choral Activities office in the MSC. The new facility will allow the department to better support current and future offerings, to work more collaboratively, provide secure storage for equipment, provide spaces for student learning and do all of this in a safe working environment.
