Whether you choose to pursue performance, composition, or music education, our diverse curriculum flows through classical, jazz, commercial, and world music to help you navigate the broad range of opportunities that exist for the 21st-century musician.
You’ll enjoy extensive performance opportunities with over 20 different ensembles ranging from choir and orchestra, to big band and mariachi. Our 200+ concerts per year, including our Visiting Artist Series, will inspire and enrich your musical experience.
