NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Gov. Bill Haslam's lone public event scheduled for this week is a ribbon cutting at the University of Tennessee's Natalie L. Haslam Music Center in Knoxville on Friday.
A $10 million gift from Jim and Natalie Haslam, the governor's father and stepmother, and the Haslam Family Foundation helped fund the building along with $30 million from the state.
Construction on the four-story, 123,000-foot facility began in 2010 when the university tore down the old building. The School of Music students and faculty have been using classrooms and offices in other buildings since then.
The new facility, which includes sound-proof studios, offices and practice rooms, also gives the school room to increase enrollment.
