The first work on the new music wing expansion began on Monday, September 20, 2021. Several new rooms are being added to the music (west) wing, including a second rehearsal room, an instrument/sheet music storage room, a small robing room and a chair storage room. The expansion also includes a new (same level / no steps) hallway to the sanctuary.
The initial work this week involved measuring, outlining and excavating the foundations for the new expansion, which lies immediately south of the current music wing. On the west side of the expansion a new exterior door is framed by two columns that support a covered porch. The excavations for the walls, porch and columns were all immediately filled with steel reinforced concrete. The next day masons began to build the block walls that rest on the foundations and connect to the new sanctuary.
