The exterior of the building blends with adjacent structures in the fine arts complex, as well as with the campus in general. The outer shell is red brick and white concrete like Quirk Dramatic Arts Building next door.

The overhanging second floor level is reminiscent of Pray-Harrold. There was a shift from strictly box shaped modernism to more playful post-modernism.

The building consists of 86,000 square feet and contains around 80 practice rooms of varying sizes, an organ recital room and a large recital hall with a stage and seating for 150.
