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.
Handbells, choir, opera, jazz, flute, symphonic orchestra, percussion — many campus and community ensembles are offered. Some tour nationally and internationally.
High-achieving students with outstanding music skills, from any major, may audition for distinguished scholarships as a Choral, Instrumental or Orchestral Scholar.
Receive free instruction from visiting artists such as The King’s Singers, soprano Joyce DiDonato, violinist Jeremy Denk and flutist James Galway.
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.
