The music department is a community that values and cultivates the creation, performance, and critical study of the world's music.
Students majoring in Music develop an integrated understanding of music in performance, creative work, and as cultural and historical expression. Through its curriculum, concerts and recitals, master classes, guest lectures, residencies, and other public events, the Music Department establishes itself as the hub of musical life for the College and surrounding community of Northeast Los Angeles.
We are excited to announce the launching of the Occidental Sinfonia, conducted by our new Director of Instrumental Activities, Dean Anderson. The Sinfonia will perform repertoire from the Baroque to the present, will collaborate with the composition and film scoring courses as well as with Glee Club and College Chorus. This ensemble is open to ALL students as well as alumni and community members. Please find out more about the Sinfonia here, and about Dean Anderson here.
