Department ofMusic

The Department of Music at Santa Clara University provides an intellectual and stimulating artistic environment fostering individual expression and creativity through the study of music and musical performance.

About Our Program

The Department of Music offers a degree program leading to the bachelor of arts in music as well as a minor in music. A minor in musical theatre is available in conjunction with the Department of Theatre and Dance. The Department of Music's curriculum is designed to provide students of diverse backgrounds with the skills necessary to comprehend, perform, and appreciate music's role in human history and its power to enhance the lives of all people. Because individual study and performance is essential to the expression and acquisition of music as a language and art form, private instruction and membership in all departmental music ensembles is available to all Santa Clara students.

End of the Year Fusion Concert

Our end-of-year Fusion concert is the place where many of our ensembles meet and work on collaborations. Due to the limitations of our online format, this year we decided to make Fusion to be a showcase compilation of the best work from many of our ensembles.
