The concept was to create a soul music campus centered around a replica of the original building that contained the STAX recording studio including the classic STAX theater marquee. it's part of the $20 million campus at the heart of the Soulsville, USA community of Memphis TN and adjacent to the grounds of the legendary STAX record company. This 27,000 square foot ultra high tech facility honors history, expresses vitality, inspires creativity and provides quality instruction for young musicians.
