It’s music to our ears.
Borough President Melinda Katz announced last Thursday that Queens College is among the recipients of funding allocated to the four CUNY schools in the borough.
The $1 million investment will be used for the construction of recording studios for the new Music and Production Certificate program at the college. The new studios will provide multi-use facilities that can be used for classes, rehearsals and as a performance space.
The project will also provide the proper acoustical components, sound absorbers and diffusers, according to Katz’s office. The anticipated completion date is January 2019.
“As the third-largest university system in the United States, CUNY offers a high-quality and remarkably affordable and competitive higher education that enables the pursuit of the American Dream,” Katz said in a statement. “This multi-million dollar allocation of public funding is a direct investment into the public colleges of our borough so that CUNY remains able to meet the educational needs of its hard-working students.”
In total, Katz’s office allocated $3.64 million that will also go to York College in Jamaica, LaGuardia Community College in Long Island City and Queensborough Community College in Bayside.
