A new music education building will be named the Michael and Anne Greenwood School of Music in honor of the couple whose generous donation is making its construction possible. The Greenwoods’ gift will be connected to The McKnight Center for the Performing Arts on the southwest corner of University Avenue and Hester Street. Both are expected to debut in the fall of 2019.
The Michael and Anne Greenwood School of Music will house a variety of music laboratories, classrooms, rehearsal spaces and premier teaching studios equipped with the latest technology for high-level studio production, offering a premier teaching experience. More than 2,100 students participate in music programs at Oklahoma State, including the OSU Marching Band, orchestra and various chorale groups.
The Greenwoods have served on numerous boards and committees at OSU in various volunteer and leadership capacities while financially supporting several programs including three endowed scholarships. A library reading room and the campus tennis center are named in their honor.
In addition to the Greenwoods, OSU has also recognized the Edward and Helen Bartlett Foundation for its commitment to the music building, and Jonathan Drummond and other donors who made early commitments to the adjoining McKnight Center for the Performing Arts.
