That's real unfortunate. TCU and Near Southside hospitals have torn down literally hundreds of homes over recent decades in order to expand.

And now a plan to build over some parking.  TCU is planning a new facility for the music school that includes a concert hall:

This new facility could really add to the preliminary recital offerings for the Cliburn Competition, as well as other smaller ensemble performances. It would be great if TCU could establish or partner with another entity to sponsor a specialized ensemble like the Orchestra of New Spain over in Dallas.

It definitely looks like it will be a lovely facility.  I love the "cocoon" design of the current PepsiCo Recital Hall, but this new concert hall looks like it could take on larger audiences than the current recital hall.  Plus I doubt any of the current fine arts facilities would be replaced, anyways.

That said, TCU also has the Ed Landreth Auditorium for performances with larger audiences, but that facility is older and does seem a little bland on the inside from a design standpoint (at least compared to the newer PepsiCo Recital Hall and the Hays Theatre), although the front area of the auditorium and the stage do seem beautiful in their own way. Furthermore, the Landreth auditorium probably wasn't designed specifically with concerts and recitals in mind (though the Cliburn competition used the Landreth for quite some time before Bass Hall opened), since the facility can have other uses.  Other parts of the College of Fine Arts also use the Ed Landreth Auditorium (namely the TCU School of Classical and Contemporary Dance, although smaller dance performances can be accommodated in Erma Lowe Hall), along with the University for some functions and events like Convocation.

Hopefully this will be a facility that helps to better unify and consolidate the School of Music, as their classrooms and facilities are currently spread out across campus (the Walsh/Ed Landreth complex, Jarvis Hall, and between Bellaire North and Berry).
