Vocal students participate in a broad range of performance activities including major choral-orchestral works, opera, chamber music, musical theatre and solo recitals. The performance program is augmented by a strong curriculum in theory, ear training and piano and music history, helping the student to develop as a complete musician.

Students audition for private instruction placement with our voice faculty. Voice Repertory class is required of all Applied Music majors whose primary performing medium is the voice
