WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Purdue Bands and Orchestras will have a new home come 2021. Friday, the Purdue Board of Trustees approved the student organization to move out of its 80-year-old Elliott Hall of Music space and into a brand new building.

The building will bring together more than 30 ensembles into one new space. It will be built at the southeast corner of Third and North Russell streets. It will require demolition of an existing building.

According to a news release, the program's student membership has grown by 65-percent since the fall of 2013. The building will have academic and rehearsal spaces, as well offices for staff. 

Construction will begin in September 2020, with completion slated for December 2021.
