Colleges and Schools


The music department offers four choirs, an orchestra, a concert band, a jazz ensemble, various instrumental chamber ensembles, and an opera program. These groups perform individually and in collaboration, both on-campus and off-campus. Some ensembles tour domestically and abroad and take part in festivals and competitions. The opera program stages a workshop and either a full opera or selected scenes each year.

In addition, the music department, in partnership with University Ministries, coordinates worship teams that lead the campus community in worship at various services throughout the year.

Ensembles are open to both music majors and non-music majors; most require auditions.
