Tarr Music Center
1620 Russell Ave., Jefferson City, TN 37760
Completed in 1980, this two-story complex has 45,704 square feet of floor space especially designed to enhance both teaching and performance. A spacious lobby is the focal point of the central wing. An overpass which transects the lobby serves as a student lounge and study area. Also housed in this wing are studios, classrooms, practice rooms, the music library, and the central office. The choral rehersal room, seating 100 singers, is located in the south wing, and the band rehearsal hall is located in the north wing. Both rooms are designed with the acoustical needs of each group paramount in planning. The recital hall seating 250 is located in the west wing and houses a 32-rank Reuter teaching and recital organ. A complete electronic center allows multi-track recordings of recital hall performances as well as choral and band rehearsals.
