Opera student Ian Walker sings a piece from "The Marriage of Figaro" in UCLA's new Ostin Center.

The halls and spaces in the new Evelyn and Mo Ostin Music Center are alive with the sounds of students learning, practicing, studying and socializing. Move-in for the new state-of-the-art campus music facility, funded in part by a $10 million gift from music industry executive and philanthropist Morris “Mo” Ostin, has begun in the fall quarter.

The building features spaces for rehearsal and teaching, the Music Café, social space and an Internet-based music production center. Final details and all equipment installation are anticipated to be completed during winter quarter. Located adjacent to the Schoenberg Music Building and the Inverted Fountain, the Ostin Center is a critical part of a music complex that houses the UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music, providing faculty and students access to the latest advances in music technology, research and pedagogy.

The building was designed by Los Angeles–based Kevin Daly Architects.
