COLLEGE STATION - The Texas A&M Foundation recently received $4 million in contributions to help build a new $40 million music activities center to serve as the home of the Texas A&M Band.

"The new facility — to be located on the current Duncan Drill Field site — will replace the E.V. Adams Band Hall and be completed in 2017," said Timothy Rhea, director of bands.

The donors are Anne and David Dunlap of The Woodlands, who contributed $3 million; Patti and Weldon Kruger of College Station, who donated $1 million; and Elizabeth and Paul Motheral of Spicewood, who gave the Foundation a deed to a home on Lake Travis in Austin.

The 100-yard artificial drill field will be named the Dunlap Drill Field, a plaza will be designated as the Patricia C. and Weldon D. Kruger '53 Plaza and a rehearsal hall is to be named to honor the Motheral couple, Rhea said.

Current plans are for the university to provide half of the funding for the new music complex while donations will be used to pay for the remaining $20 million in costs.
