The music department is home to 200 music majors and 400+ non-majors every semester.

Consider auditioning for any of the 19 major music ensembles, including The Concordia Choir, The Concordia Band, and The Concordia Orchestra.

Private lessons with music faculty members will help increase your skills, and more than 700 music lessons are given each week. Many faculty and student led chamber ensembles are active and also worth considering!
