What are your musical interests?
Concordia’s musicians, on average, receive some of the most generous financial aid packages available at the university because they stack academic scholarships and music scholarships. All university students have the same access to the top music and academic scholarships, regardless of major.
Each year, Concordia supports an international music ensemble tour. The cost for student performers is only app. 25% of the actual cost of the trip.
Recent and upcoming tours:
Concordia’s top music ensembles are filled with students studying to be music professionals, scientists, church workers, business leaders, historians, writers, and many other interests. They are not restricted to the top music major performers. Instead, they include any student who wants life enrichment through performance excellence and music ministry. Many proudly take on the title of “honorary music major!”
All Concordia music majors study in a rigorous core of music classes aimed at developing general musicianship, performance musicianship, musical leadership & collaboration, critical listening, and an intellectual understanding of the various contexts of music. Additionally, they have options for a more focused education in a field within music.
Typical things we hear from alumni: “I miss singing/playing in Concordia’s music groups.” “The concerts and worship services that we performed music in were so meaningful.” “Remember when…(followed by a lively tour story)” and even “You are cordially invited to our wedding!” The college years are unforgettable, and participation in music multiplies the fun, friends, and memories!
