Why music performance?
The Music Performance major is designed for a student who has both a strong interest and well developed skills in musical performance in one or more areas. It may be combined with the Master of Arts in Instruction fifth-year education program. Future career plans may include graduate school to further prepare for a professional performing career.
Students majoring in the Vocal Performance track must demonstrate proficiency in at least one language other than English, preferably a language found in a significant body of vocal literature from the standard western art music repertoire. Language proficiency may be demonstrated by either the satisfactory completion (all grades C or better) of at least two years of foreign language study at the secondary level, or by completion of at least two semesters of foreign language study at the college level.
