Who We Are

The Department of Music is a community of musicians and teachers who work collaboratively to support and encourage one another. Our mission is to provide a rigorous, professional artistic experience at the undergraduate and graduate levels; produce graduates who use their musical abilities to enrich and sustain communities within the university, the region, and beyond; and support ongoing musical experiences as part of a comprehensive Liberal Arts education.

All are welcome in our department to experience the joy of performing, listening, creating, and learning about music. We believe in the power of music to bring joy, beauty, and peace to the world.
