​​​​​Rendering of Rice music hall​HOUSTON – Rice University officials have broken ground on a new music building.

The new 84,000-sf facility will join Brown Hall and an adjoining plaza to form the Rice University Music and Performing Arts Center. 

The new building will house a three-tiered, 600-seat, European-style theater with an orchestra pit for 70 musicians, which will be the only theater with that particular configuration among U.S. universities and conservatories.

As of December 2016, the school had raised $90 million of the project's approximately $100 million cost. 

Rice expects the school to open in late 2020.
