Your $500 donation to the Making Space for Music campaign will name a refurbished seat in the Maureen Forrester Recital Hall in support of Laurier’s world-renowned Faculty of Music. Refurbished seats will have a plaque that showcases the donor's chosen message
Celebrate the performing arts in Waterloo Region and leave a lasting legacy in this iconic space.
Laurier’s Faculty of Music is a national and international leader in music education, music industry, music performance and music therapy. We are dedicated to facilitating artistic and scholarly development of the highest calibre in a supportive, inclusive and experiential learning environment that challenges students to achieve their dreams.
With your help, we are renovating and expanding our current music building, transforming it into a vastly improved space for teaching, practising, rehearsing and performing. It will be a space that welcomes everyone in, bringing more musical experiences to the broader community.
Through the Making Space for Music campaign, Laurier's Faculty of Music will become a dynamic and connected hub for students, faculty, alumni, musicians and music lovers in Waterloo Region and beyond.
See the impact with the different spaces the Making Space for Music campaign will create.
Full of natural light and equipped with relaxed seating, sound equipment and a grand piano, this contemporary, glassed-in space will become the site for impromptu concerts by students and faculty, as well as for small musical events in Waterloo.
This dramatic new gateway to the Waterloo campus will complement the architecture of Lazaridis Hall and continue Laurier’s transformation of University Avenue.
There will be two floors of practice rooms for solo practice and ensemble rehearsals. Rooms on the second floor will be designed with floor-to-ceiling windows providing a view onto University Avenue.
A message from Cynthia Johnston Turner, dean of the Faculty of Music:
"We're giving students what they need to thrive after graduation!"
