Music Programs

The Music program promotes an understanding and appreciation of musical expression as part of a liberal arts education. Increase your knowledge of theory and history across diverse musical cultures. Develop your abilities through ear-training, sight-singing, harmony, orchestration, composition, and conducting. You may also pursue an emphasis in applied music.

You will have a wide range of performance opportunities through college choirs, instrumental ensembles and individual recitals. Through your coursework and performances you will develop a wide musical repertoire that reinforces spiritual values, promotes the University's mission, and provides an important outreach to local and regional audiences.

You are also encouraged to perform with all the Music groups as a non-major as well!
