New Music Building Opened A new building to house the Edith McIntosh School of Music was opened at 48 Hillside Avenue, Rockville Cen-tre,..L. I.. last Sunday. The structure was designed In the style of nn early American dwelling, three stories in height. It includes a large recital hall and a general class room of equal area. each with capacity for 150 per-sons. There are also a foyer, waiting rooms, teaching rooms, study, iire.,8- ing rooms and cloak rooms. D. K. Sargent of Syracuse, in collaboration with L. C.

A UNIQUE ACHIEVEMENT
THE Music Center opened by the Edith McIntosh School of Music at 48 Hill-side avenue, Rockville Centre, is a new idea skilfully worked out. Housed in an attractive building designed by eminent architects and tastefully fur-nished throughout, the McIntosh studios, which have had a place in the life of the village for the last 15 years, now become one of its most distinguished institutions. The modest appointments of the rooms have been given the impression of luxury through the use of good taste in furnish-ings and decorations. Prof. L. C. Dillen-back of Syracuse University, who collabor-ated in planning the building, has given it an air of unsual distinctiveness by the thoroughness with which it is laid out. It seems to anticipate every condition or need that might arise in connection with the systematic operation of a conservatory of music, which may be used at one period of 'he day for instruction in many rooms, later he the scene of a recital and at another time accommodate a banquet, dance or re-ception. While the building was erected in an amazingly short period, the idea has .'volved from many years of experience and two continents have been gleaned to prp-vide the simple decorations that have been used to make it a symbol of culture and the fine arts. Miss McIntosh, who has brought many artists of note to the village in the past, is to be congratulated upon her new achieve-ment. It should be the scene of many de-lightful musicales and the source of in-spiration for the development of the talents of its pupils.
