Fresno State is home to one of the most modern and extensive music facilities in the 23 campus CSU system. The new 65,000 square foot expansion Music Building, completed in 1991, combined with an extensive remodeling of the existing facility ensures students enjoy all the advantages a modern facility enjoys. The building houses the 320 seat Concert Hall, the 200 seat Wahlberg Recital Hall, a 220 seat Rehearsal Hall, as well as over 30 practice rooms, classrooms, a large dance studio, faculty office space, a conference room, student lounge, and 700 student lockers. The building also contains two digital recording studios, computer labs, MIDI and electronic music labs, and a tracker-action organ.
