The Department of Music and Sacred Music at Notre Dame will relocate to a new music building, hopefully to be completed in 2017: the South Building of the new Campus Crossroads Project. The new building will house recital and rehearsal halls; a large music library, to be relocated from the Hesburgh Library, classrooms; rehearsal and tutoring rooms; Department of Music offices, practice rooms, and storage; and the Sacred Music at Notre Dame program, offices, organ practice rooms, and storage.
Crowley Hall of Music
Located in the center of campus, Crowley Hall is the site of the department's classrooms, faculty offices, practice rooms, departmental offices, and a rehearsal room. Piano majors have access to Steinway Grand Pianos for practice. Organ majors have five organs available for practice, including a Fuehrer tracker (2-6), a Gober tracker (2-5), and a Holtkamp studio organ (2-5) in Crowley Hall; a Holtkamp tracker (3-40) in the Basilica of the Sacred Heart; and the Fritts organ in the Marie P. DeBartolo Center for the Performing Arts.
The Ricci Band Rehearsal Hall

The Band Building is located on the east side of campus in close proximity to Notre Dame Stadium, Joyce Athletics and Convocations Center, and Rolfs Aquatic Center.

Located in the Marie P. DeBartolo Performing Arts Center and home to a spectacular Fritts tracker organ, the Reyes Organ and Choral Hall is a chapel-like venue mainly used for performances in organ, a cappella vocal and other baroque ensemble concerts and recitals. The organ is a gift of Marjorie O’Malley.
