Beckett School of Music given to WLU

April 29, 2015

Rather than sell the Beckett School of Music to the highest bidder, owners William J Labron and Lynn McRuer have given it to Wilfrid Laurier University. WLU will begin operating the school as part of its new Laurier Conservatory of Music in fall 2015. The school currently serves over 1,000 families across the region and over time it will be more tightly integrated with WLU’s music faculty. “This is a transformative step forward for our Faculty of Music,” said Glen Carruthers, Dean of WLU’s Faculty of Music. “The Beckett School has a tremendous reputation across the country for top-quality musical instruction and we will build on this tradition of excellence.” WLU News Release | Waterloo Region Record
