HOLLAND, Mich. (AP) — Hope College in Holland is holding a groundbreaking ceremony Wednesday for its $35 million musical arts center, named for civic leader and alumnus Jack H. Miller.
The 64,000-square-foot Miller Center for Musical Arts includes an 800-seat concert hall, recital hall with about 125 seats, classrooms, practice rooms, faculty studios and offices.
The ceremony is at 4 p.m.
Miller gave a big part of the money for the center. He lives in Grand Haven and Naples, Fla., and is a 1954 Hope graduate.
Miller led the clock-making company Howard Miller for 48 years until he retired in 2002. His father founded the company in 1926.
It's across the street from the Martha Miller Center for Global Communication, named for Miller's mother. She was a 1924 Hope Graduate.
