Serving as a tribute to Mason City native Meredith Willson, composer, writer and lyricist of “The Music Man,” this large scale project has become a national destination for music education and performance. B+C worked in partnership with Boxwood, Seattle to create the Meredith Willson Museum, a Children’s Music Exploratorium, a conservatory of music, two theaters, community rooms and an outdoor entertainment plaza. A block long interior streetscape replicates building facades adapted from the 1966 Warner Bros. film combined with historic Mason City buildings.
