Conservatory Students Forced Outside by Inadequate Practice Facilities

BROOKLYN COLLEGE — Last week, music could be heard across campus as a Brooklyn College Conservatory of Music student played his marimba on the quad to protest the lack of adequate practice rooms available to music students.

Conservatory students have struggled with inadequate rooms in Whitman and Roosevelt for several years, and now with repairs and asbestos removals pushing them out of Whitman, students have been forced to find new places to practice.
