UBC Reports | Vol. 51 | No. 11 | Nov. 3, 2005

Timepiece 1953, 2005, and Beyond

A growing vision for the UBC School of Music

Professor Harry Adaskin was head of the Department of Music that was formed in 1947, and is pictured here performing with pianist Francis Marr in 1953. Today’s School of Music building was constructed in 1967, and this past Spring completed the first phase of a renovation and renewal program with the arrival of 13 new Yamaha and Steinway pianos purchased from Tom Lee Music.

Says current director Jesse Read, “We look forward to the continued program of replacement of instruments, upgrade of facilities and renovations, and the fulfillment of our long-standing dream of renovating the Old Auditorium and ultimately, building a Creative and Performing Arts Centre beside the Music School.”
