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 as creative work, as cultural and historical expression, and as performance.
Through its curriculum, recitals, lectures, master classes, residencies, and other public events, the music department leads the discourse that enriches College and community life.
Students study, practice, and perform in Booth and Thorne Halls, with access to practice rooms, large and small performance venues, a well-equipped electronic music studio, and an outstanding music library.
