The opening for the new building of the Michael and Anne Greenwood School of Music last Saturday aired its opening ceremony on OState TV. 

The event features a list of guest speakers like Glen Krutz Dean of the OSU College of Arts and Sciences,  OSU President Kayse Shrum and donors Anne and Mike Greenwood. OSU’s marching band and Polka Pella also gave special musical performances during the ceremony.

All speakers shared their enthusiasm for the music program as well as their excitement for the opportunities that the new building will cater to students. 

While the event opened the school, it also provided information for students like Ryder Bates, strategic communication sophomore.

 “(The grand opening) provides an opportunity for me or other creatively inclined students to get involved in music,” Bates said.

The new building for the Greenwood School of Music can offer a space for students to express new ideas. Kasey Russell, an art administration senior major, said the school gives more opportunities to get involved with music.

“For me, I’m in the orchestra, so now we have a nicer space to practice and overall people have more resources to hone their craft,”  Russell said.

The Greenwood School of Music can not only provide a creative space with new technology, the school of music will also have a well equipped, award-winning faculty and staff to help students with any needs they have.

“Everything you see here is for you, welcome home,” said Greenwood.
