Each week the music department loads the event calendar with concerts, recitals and jazz sessions.

These performances showcase diverse musical talent that has earned the music program several Grammy and Emmy winning artists and composers.

“Im really proud of their efforts,” associate professor Nicholas Williams said of the Concert Band, which performed its first concert of the semester on Feb. 18.

From the 7 O’Clock Lab Band to the Baroque Orchestra and Collegium Singers, the music program continues to regularly supply students and faculty with music.
