The music faculty are incredibly Interdisciplinary, and offer courses that intersect with other departments and programs across campus. Students enjoy many opportunities to perform in our numerous ensembles and develop musicianship through private lessons. We offer a Major, ID, Minor and a World Musics and Cultures Minor.
Elyse Clark '18 - The Music Department at Union gave me confidence in myself as a scholar and performer. It gave me the opportunity to perform many types of music with great people and opened my eyes to the vast musical world outside the Western Canon.
Emily (Karam) Black '11 - My time spent in the music department was some of my best times at Union. I loved all of my classes especially the world music classes and being a member of Taiko! The unit we did on Bali my senior year with a Music and Dance concert is something I still talk about.
