LIONEL HAMPTON Jazz Center Planned|
Moscow, Idaho -- A multimillion-dollar music complex is being planned to commemorate Lionel Hampton at the University of Idaho, AP reported.
The Lionel Hampton Center will serve as a performance hall and education facility located east of the university's music school.
The center is expected to be completed in 2006, depending on the success of fund-raising efforts.
The project will secure the future of the Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival and support scholarships and professorships at the Lionel Hampton School of Music.
About $40 million is needed for a center that will include a 1,200-seat performance hall, classrooms, offices and rehearsal rooms. Another $20 million will pay for scholarships, new professors and digitized conversion of the school's international jazz collection.
