Chicago’s Old Town School of Folk Music Plans to Expand

The Old Town School of Folk Music in Chicago has majro plans. They recently purchased a vacant lot right across the street from the current location and plan to build a second building full of classroms, dance studios, and another venue for performances.

The total project is estimated to cost around $18 million. TheĀ  building they’re in now was once a library and now serves as the home for 7,000 students. Even still, having rooms built with the right type of soundproofing from the get-go will prove to be a tremendous asset and will enable the school to take on more students instead of turning them away.

Groundbreaking will be later this year!
