One of the most important contributions provided by the Music Department is the opportunity for self-expression, either individually or with o

Last Wednesday I attended the British Eighth Final Senior Band Concert on the Quad. Was TREMENDOUSLY impressed by the wonderful growth in intonation, ensemble, and expressive use of dynamics in phrasing--all undoubtedly helped with the gradual addition of new instruments generously provided by the Sarns Build the Band Gift. Special thanks must go to their brilliant and inspiring conductor Robert Livingston who has made such incredible artistic contributions to this ensemble these past four years. The previous good comraderie among the ensemble is now at an all-time high! Couldn't be more proud of all of you!!
please google edgraves overcoming obstacles in the south!
Hi! Any word on how the music major .5 unit ensemble participation requirement will be handled during the fall semester?
Thank you all for your support of Evan. Those who know him well know that although he is a high achiever, he is a shy receiver of his accolades. It's a self-affirming moment in his (and all of ours) life when hard work and dedication = recognition and appreciation. So proud of both of my wonderful young men!🥰🥰
Very excited to share this announcement!
Albion College friends from 1992-1995...thanks to the wonderful work of our own Ronald Weiler. I have VHS tapes that were converted to digital files. If anyone is interested, I have 1992 Lessons and Carols, 1993 Opera Scenes, and 1995 Graduation. Here is the link if you would like them.
Please share this with any of your wind and percussion instructors who teach high school students. This is a great scholarship award competition!
So nice to catch up with Jennifer Trost, '79, voice faculty at Penn State, during a recent trip through PA. Jennifer will be performing and giving a masterclass at Albion on Sept. 6-7 - come hear!
