Performance Ensembles & Opportunities

MORGAN MUSIC offers students a variety of performance and travel opportunities throughout the academic year and the summer months. Study at Morgan not only offers outstanding training by our world-class faculty but also provides our students a passport to the world stages. Our students sing and play for heads of state, collaborate with world-renowned performing artists, and have traveled and performed on almost every continent.

WEEKLY STUDENT RECITALS - Music students are provided regular opportunities to perform solo repertoire they are studying in their applied lessons. Each semester a weekly Tuesday morning recital is presented in one of our performance venues in the Murphy Fine Arts Center. Attendance at these recitals is required of all students in the music major and is part of the final grade for the applied lesson. 

MASTER CLASSES & STUDIO CLASSES - Each semester we offer master classes and studio classes within each concentration of our music major. Students have a variety of opportunities to work with guest clinicians who are professional artists and music scholars from all over the world and specialize in their area of concentration.
