Have you ever passed this building and wondered, "what the heck goes on in there?"
We have the answer this week on Urban Spelunking, as OnMilwaukee.com Managing Editor Bobby Tanzilo takes us inside the Wisconsin Conservatory of Music.
Chicago architect H.R. Wilson designed the Neo-Classical Revival mansion, which sits at 1584 N. Prospect Ave. It was erected in 1904 as the home to Charles McIntosh, a wealthy industrialist.
Today, the mansion has been converted to a music education complex, using almost every room in the building for the Conservatory's programs, serving both adults and children. Music fills the air everywhere you walk, and if you happen to stumble upon one specific "sweet spot" in the lobby, you'll hear sounds from all the practice spaces converging to a point.
