Syracuse (WSYR-TV) - Soundproof practice rooms, a 150 seat recital hall, and eight smart classrooms have been added to the Onondaga Community College campus.
Visitors were invited for a tour of the new building during an open house on Saturday.
The site, dubbed Academic II, spans a 60-foot high gorge. The facade is designed to resemble frets on a guitar, as it houses the college's music department.
Student musicians entertained visitors who came to see the new building throughout the afternoon.
