McGill's new music lab


The jewel at McGill is the new music building, a 7-floor glass and concrete building connected to old Strathcona Hall, kick-started by a $20 million gift from real estate magnate and alumnus Seymour Schulich, inspired when fellow developer and Toronto Symphony director Joe Sorbora told him: "Music is what makes us human." The worlds of neuroscience, law, digital technology, psychology, acoustics and physical fitness are mingling with musical theory and performance, making it a global leader in conservatory research.
