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.

It's across the street from the Martha Miller Center for Global Communication, named for Miller's mother. She was a 1924 Hope Graduate.
