Music at the University of Colorado started its journey in the first decade of the Boulder campus. Nearly 50 years later, in 1920, the College of Music was created. The new college gave the study of music performance and history a permanent home. It also laid the foundation for an institution whose influence would ripple throughout the music world through the work of graduates such as Dave Grusin, Tia Fuller and countless others.

Today, the college is preparing to usher in the second century of music at CU Boulder in style, with a year-long celebration and special events planned, and a brand new, 64,000-square-foot addition to Imig Music Building set to open in late 2020. As we look ahead to the future of music, a century in the making, we invite you to join us as we celebrate the moments—big and small—of the College of Music’s first 100 years.
