By Bailey Basham

After more than 14 months of construction, work on the Jackson Center for Music and Worship Arts is complete. The university will celebrate its opening and dedication with a week of concerts in the performance hall.

The university closed the $1.4 million real estate deal in Dec. 2015 on the land that formerly belonged to Volunteer Trucking Company and renovations on the existing buildings on the property began soon after.

The Jackson Center for Music and Worship arts, named in honor of William R. Jackson’s music-loving mother and daughter, is home to the Department of Music, the Center of Worship Arts and the National Praise and Worship Institute (NPWI).
