Ring the chimes – it’s time to celebrate the reopening of Ellis Hall on the Missouri State University campus. Ellis is home to the music department and has recently undergone a huge face lift that will make new students, faculty and staff sing with pride.
The $14 million project centered on improving the facility’s acoustic conditions, reconfiguring space and updating material finishes.
This summer, construction crews finished framing windows and installing glass, lighting and sheetrock. The building also has an upgraded roof, HVAC and other mechanical systems.
Dr. Julie Combs, head of the music department at MSU, shares about the opening weekend Sept. 22-24.
