I went to preview the new San Francisco Conservatory of Music building on Oak and Franklin this evening. While it mostly was a donor affair with wine, hors d’oeuvres, etc., it was still a nice preview of what will be the new home of the music school.
One couldn’t really see much at this event anyway since so much work still has to be done to the space. The scaffolding covers everything and acoustics are hard to judge. The new buildings will have a large stage (450 seats), a smaller recital hall, teaching facilities, a recording studio, and much more. In fact, a lot of the “new” building (the one on the left, above) was non accessable at this event. Students of the Conservatory served as guides. Looks promising!
