A Princeton alumnus and his wife have donated $10 million for the new music building that is part of Princeton University’s $320,000 million arts and transit neighborhood. The building eventually will be named by the donors, who want to remain anonymous for now.

The new 23,00-square-foot music building will provide space for student musicians on the south edge of the campus. It will supplement space at the 47,000-square-foot Woolworth Center of Musical Studies near the center of campus.

“This splendid gift will benefit our student musicians and the audiences who come to hear them,” Princeton University President Christopher Eisgruber said. “The additional space is an essential element in enabling our arts initiative — launched less than a decade ago — to flourish. We are excited about seeing the arts at Princeton reach their full potential, and we are grateful to our generous alumni and friends for helping to make it possible.”
