about the 560 music center

T

he 560 Music Center was built in 1930 as the Shaare Emeth Temple. This beautiful Art Deco building was home to the Saint Louis Conservatory and School for the Arts (CASA) from 1974-1994. Following the merger by the St. Louis Symphony and CASA in 1994, the building housed the St. Louis Symphony Community Music School. In September 2001, the Community Music School joined with Webster University. In October 2006, Washington University took possession of the facility, and the renovated facility opened to our students in the fall of 2007.

c o mm i t m e n t t o o p e n & r e s p e c t f u l e v e n t s Washington University fully embraces a commitment to presenting a wide diversity of ideas and opinions, as well as encouraging free discussion of those ideas and opinions. It is with this commitment in mind the University agrees that event proceedings and guest speakers should expect to be heard without interference from or harassment by those who oppose their views or positions, and that posters, banners, noisemakers, and other distractions should not be brought into the presentation area during a program or talk, so that an environment free of interference, distraction, and intimidation shall be maintained. The Washington University policy is: No placards, banners, noisemakers, and other distractions are permitted in outdoor or indoor presentation areas on campus – either in support of or in opposition to speakers or event proceedings. Groups and individuals are free to gather outside of these venues and presentation areas to leaflet, to display posters and banners, to distribute literature, and to express their concerns – as long as they do not obstruct entry, disrupt event proceedings, interfere with speakers’ ability to be heard, or otherwise deny the audience an interruption-free event.
