Music complex to be named for Stephen ’59BA and Denise Adams

At Convocation on Monday, September 9, 2013, Dean Robert Blocker and Yale President Peter Salovey announced that the music complex centered around the renovated and expanded Hendrie Hall will be known as the Adams Center for Musical Arts when it opens in 2016.

In 2006, Stephen Adams ’59BA and his wife, Denise Adams, donated $100 million to the School of Music. The gift, which Mr. and Mrs. Adams originally made anonymously, allowed all School of Music students from that point onward to attend tuition-free; it also enriched the educational experience through enhanced programs at the School.
