Hope College Music Department Facilities

The Department of Music is housed in the new Jack H. Miller Center for Musical Arts.

The 64,000-square-foot Jack H. Miller Center for Musical Arts includes not only the two performance venues, but classrooms, practice/rehearsal rooms, recording studio, faculty studios and office space for the department of music.

The building is named in honor of Jack H. Miller ’54 for his lifetime of generosity to the college.
