Our program

Our aim is to develop general musicianship, performance, musical collaboration, and critical listening, along with an understanding of various contexts of music. Ensembles — comprised of orchestras, jazz, choirs, worship, commercial music, handbell, and chamber — are open to students studying to be music professionals, as well as students who are non-music majors but desire to perform for the joy of music.
