Situated next door to Clowes Hall, Lilly Hall anchors the
northeast corner of the Butler campus. Dedicated on December 9,
1962, the building is home to the School of Music as well as the
Departments of Dance and Theatre.
The building is named after Eli Lilly, founder of the drug
company that bears his name, due to a large donation given to the
Jordan College of Music through the auspices of the Lilly
Endowment. Lilly Hall boasts numerous faculty offices, practice
rooms, dance studios and also serves as the home for the music
libraries of the band, orchestra, and choral departments.
In 1994, the Prototype Multimedia Teaching Facility, now called
the Multisensory Learning
Facility, was added. In 2003, a major addition to Lilly Hall
was completed, the Allen Whitehill Clowes Pavilion, adding
rehearsal facilities for each of the ensembles, a new percussion
studio and a new home to the Electronic Music Studio, as
well as facilities for the theatre and dance departments.
