Boston’s Berklee College Of Music has opened their brand new $100 million, 16-story building at 160 Massachusetts Ave. The Building incorporates 369 student beds and over 173 dorm rooms, a 400-seat cafeteria lobby that functions as live showcase space, 23 practice rooms, a fitness facility, and will soon house a 14,000 square-foot, 10-studio music complex that will be on par with the the biggest in the United States.
Berklee’s long standing commitment to music education and maintaining the highest levels of technical sophistication are exemplified in the Walters-Storyk Design Group designed recording facilities that incorporate three recording studios, a live space for up to 55 artists and a mastering and discriminating listening lab. It has a suite of four music composition studios, a technology lab and a Dolby production stage – probably the only of its kind in higher education that will help al forms of post production exercises like high level mixing, sound design and the production of audio for video games and films.
Berklee now has 37 music production studios, making the College as large as the biggest and most flexible facilities in the United States.
Expect a new flood of intelligent, highly trained, musically proficient musicians, producers, engineers, composers and arrangers to be entering the job market every year!
