Kellogg Music Center
The Kellogg Music Center is a campus landmark—a stirring reminder that Simon’s Rock is, in fact, located in a quaint New England town. The building looks like a handsomely renovated town hall. Its high-ceilinged, light-filled concert hall seats 150 and serves as a major gathering spot on campus; it’s the site of lectures by current faculty and visiting scholars, performances by student and faculty groups, and senior thesis presentations. Crucially, it’s also the home of the college’s regular community meetings, when students, faculty, and staff gather to share their concerns, ideas, and plans for the campus. Kellogg also includes music rehearsal studios and a fully equipped electronic music studio.
The Kellogg Music Center houses most of the facilities of the College’s music program. It was relocated from the Upper Campus and renovated in 1992 through a generous gift to the College’s 25th Anniversary Campaign by Overseer Mary Margaret Kellogg. The main floor is used for music performances, lectures, convocations, community meetings, and other College events. Downstairs, the Center has a music classroom, an electronic music studio, and storage cabinets for students’ instruments.
