Concordia completes consolidation of fine arts facilities

January 20, 2012

On Thursday, Concordia University celebrated the completed regrouping of its music, theatre, and contemporary dance departments at the university's Sir George Williams campus in downtown Montreal. The contemporary dance and theatre departments were relocated to the John Molson School of Business building in August 2009, the first step toward realizing the fine arts faculty's long-standing goal to consolidate facilities downtown. A year later, the music department moved to the Molson building. Theatre design classrooms and faculty offices for all 3 departments are located in the Guy-Metro building. The new facilities feature state-of-the-art equipment, sprung floors designed to absorb the impact of dancers' movements, and sophisticated lighting, sound, and recording systems. The new infrastructure is supported by $11 million from the federal and Quebec governments. Concordia News Release | Quebec News Release (in French)
