Conservatory of Music Open House Celebrates Dynamic Complex

Whether it's for aesthetics or acoustics, Baldwin Wallace University's newly renovated Conservatory of Music is garnering attention.

The visually impressive complex, which has more than doubled the space of the Conservatory of Music, will be open to the public for two free events Friday-Saturday, Oct. 14-15, as part of Homecoming 2011.

The four-building complex melds historic beauty and physical expanse with stellar learning opportunities.
