John J. Cali School of music at dusk Leshowitz Hall from stage looking into the seating area with a piano on stage 

The Cali School of Music makes its home in a 1928 Spanish Mission Style building at the main entrance to the campus. It was renovated and expanded in 2009 to include large rehearsal spaces and the 235-seat Jed Leshowitz Recital Hall. It accommodates nearly 500 students in its classrooms, rehearsal studios, practice rooms. The building is named in honor of the John J. Cali family whose generous $5 million gift provides scholarships and faculty support.

Large ensembles and opera performances take place in the Alexander Kasser Theater close to the music building. The Kasser Theater is also home to many professional theater and musical productions.

The Sprague Library is a resource for the wide variety of arts, liberal arts and science courses that are part of students' curricula. We encourage students to make use of all the resources on the growing Montclair State campus.
