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 leads the discourse that enriches College and community life.
Students study, practice, and perform in Booth Hall, Herrick Chapel, and Thorne Hall, with access to practice rooms, large and small performance venues, a well-equipped electronic music studio, and an outstanding music library.
