Facilities

Students at CSB/SJU are privileged with access to magnificent music facilities. The colleges boast some of the most impressive facilities in the upper Midwest, including numerous state-of-the-art performance spaces and practice facilities, and outstanding technology, libraries, and support resources. The music department is housed at St. John’s in the Music Hall and Stephen B. Humphrey Theater and at St. Ben’s in the Benedicta Arts Center. Additionally, CSB/SJU ensembles perform regularly in exceptional on-campus sacred spaces.

SJU Music Hall Practice Rooms

The top floor of the Music Hall is home to 16 practice rooms containing 15 pianos, an electric organ, and one small tracker pipe organ. Additionally, the building contains a larger organ studio on the main floor and the incredible Gertken organ.

CSB Benedicta Arts Center Practice Rooms

The BAC’s 20 practice rooms contain a total of 35 pianos. Such a large quantity of rooms ensures that students almost never have to wait for an open practice space. No sign-up, key checkout, or pre-determined practice schedule are necessary; the practice rooms are always unlocked and available for any student to use.
