Michael and Anne Greenwood School of Music
The Michael and Anne Greenwood School of Music is dedicated to enriching lives through music. Its new home is a premier music education facility that harnesses the synergy of research, artistry, and incomparable hands-on learning experiences available only at Oklahoma State University. Here, students elevate their given talents with learned technique, ensuring they shine at any performance and on their own life’s stage.
The Greenwood School of Music houses a variety of music laboratories, classrooms, and teaching studios equipped with the latest technology for high-level studio production. Its design encourages collaboration with suites strategically created for specific areas of study and rehearsal spaces that will accommodate varying sizes of music groups. The new facility, plus the opportunities created by the McKnight Center, positions OSU’s music program to continue to achieve national accolades and prominence.
"The Michael and Anne Greenwood School of Music and The McKnight Center for the Performing Arts will be catalysts to create a nationally recognized center for music education over the next decade. Together, and with additional money we will raise in the coming months, we are building inspiring facilities designed exclusively to meet the specific needs of our music programs and support first-class programming on a world stage in Stillwater, Oklahoma. I hope you’ll join us in supporting these transformational projects.”
In partnership with The McKnight Center, music students will interact with touring artists, attend masterclasses, and participate in performances and productions. Faculty and students have access to world class, world-renowned performers who do masterclasses, performances, and lectures through The McKnight Center.
“The Greenwood School of Music building significantly elevates the stature of our program. It will positively impact every facet of teaching, learning, and performing. Our students and faculty are exceptional, and with the addition of a world-class facility, we are now poised to be competitive with the very best music programs in the nation.”
Thanks to the generosity of lead donors Michael and Anne Greenwood, construction of this important project is underway and the building is expected to open in its entirety in 2021.
