University of Memphis - Scheidt Family Music Center

archimania with Fleming Architects

The new Scheidt Family Music Center at the University of Memphis will serve as a critical upgrade to the music school’s instructional areas and will contain a multi-function performance hall to be used by the School of Music and community partners. In addition to providing unique social and exchange spaces for students, faculty, and community, the Center will contain practice rooms, teaching studios, recording studios, and Orchestral, Jazz, and Choral rehearsal rooms. All of the spaces are being designed using leading edge acoustical, theatrical, and audiovisual criteria. Positioned at a key site where the northern edge of the University campus meets the surrounding city fabric, the Center will serve as a visible connection point between the School of Music, the University, and the larger arts community.
