(BLOOMINGTON) - Approval of a new, $10 million building for IU's Marching Hundred Band is on the agenda for the Indiana University Board of Trustees meeting this week on the Bloomington campus.

The Herald Times reports that the 30,000-square-foot building would be located on the southeastern corner of Woodlawn Avenue and 17th Street, across the street from Assembly Hall and Memorial Stadium.

The building would include a 6,000-square-foot rehearsal space, in addition to two smaller rehearsal rooms measuring 2,600 square feet each. It would also house instrument storage and repair space, uniform storage and more. The project would be funded by gifts through the IU Foundation.

IU's Marching Hundred is composed of students who audition and take specialized music classes. They rehearse nearly every day from 4:10 to 5:45 p.m. at Hundred Hall on the corner of Matlock Road and the Ind. 45/46 Bypass. Each year, the band performs at all home football games, one away game and the Rose Bowl (or another bowl game).

The trustees are scheduled to vote on the project at their business meeting on Friday.
