Braun Music Center was opened in 1984. It serves as the link between the student residential area and the main activities center of Stanford University. As the main building for the Department of Music, Braun is the venue for the department's concerts and recitals and offers rehearsal studios and practice facilities as well as classrooms and offices.
Department of Music events are held in Braun's Campbell Recital Hall and Dinkelspiel Auditorium. Braun also houses the Stanford University Music Library and Recorded Sound.
