Classrooms will be created to accommodate lectures, small performances and open discussions about the many precious gifts from Italian Americans to the musical arts. We will examine the greatest writers and performers, some well known, some not. We may raise money to name the rooms in honor of special gifted musicians in American history.
Music rooms will be created to listen to music videos like Frank Sinatra’s historic concert at Madison Square Garden. We will seek unique films and tapes from the Sinatra family, the Harry Warren and others that have not been viewed or listened to publicly. We will seek the newest technologies to enhance performances, instruction and listening of music.
Shared conference rooms will be built for music symposiums, performance planning sessions, guest musicians, etc.

Commercial Office Space

This component will serve as a revenue source for the foundation and the net proceeds will be used to offset the cost of the entire facility.
