Get on stage early and often

We’ll make sure you feel at home on the stage.

From your first semester, you can take advantage of opportunities to perform in our many choral, instrumental, opera and chamber music ensembles. You can perform in our weekly department recitals, and you’ll give a solo recital in both your junior and senior years. With no graduate students, the focus and attention is on you!

Off stage, you’ll get a thorough education in music theory and history, including repertoire and pedagogy classes for your instrument from professors who are experienced educators and active performers.

Enjoy bright, airy rehearsal and performance facilities—even our practice rooms have windows!

Our finest venue for live music, Stretansky Concert Hall, seats 320 and is used for everything from student recitals to fully staged opera performances with orchestra. The acoustics are amazing.

Performance of a lifetime

Your music education won’t be limited to campus. Study overseas through our award-winning GO program, and you’ll be a comfortable world traveler who’s ready to participate in music festivals at home or abroad with international artists after you graduate.

Whether you want a career on stage, in an orchestra or teaching the next generation of musicians in a private studio, our music performance degree can get you there. Adding an interdisciplinary minor, like arts administration, helps you gain a better understanding of important topics in today’s world.

Graduates frequently earn advanced music degrees at respected institutions like Peabody Institute of Music, New England Conservatory of Music or Yale University and move on to careers as performers, college professors or private teachers.
