Music Building

Known affectionately as the "birthday cake building," the Music Building is home to the ASU School of Music. The Music Building houses the Evelyn Smith Music Theatre, music classrooms and practice rooms, the Rafael Mendez Library Museum, recital halls, the Music Research Facility, Katzin Concert Hall, and the Organ Hall, home of the hand-carved, 1,800-pipe Fritts Organ.

In addition to the outstanding concert halls, the School of Music has four electronic music studios, music education and therapy labs, costume shop, piano repair shops, more than 200 studios and practice rooms, several multimedia classrooms and the ASU Libraries' Music Library.

Constructed in 1970, the building has eight levels, three of which are underground. Wesley Peters, Frank Lloyd Wright's son-in-law, designed the building, which is a neighbor to Lloyd Wright's Gammage Auditorium.
