Music

Participation in the Department of Music at Jewell is open to all musicians, regardless of major.

Private instruction, performance labs, ensembles, studio recitals and research add depth to classroom instruction for music majors and minors. Non-music majors also may take applied lessons and participate in Jewell’s highly acclaimed vocal, instrumental and choral ensembles. All students are eligible for performance scholarships.
Every three years, the Concert Choir travels to England and Scotland for a 14-day concert tour.
In 2015, the Concert Choir joined other artists to produce its first internationally distributed recording.
