The study of music at a liberal arts college provides students with a broader context and view of the discipline as it relates to life.  Rather than a focused study of performance that emphasizes hours of studio instruction and practice, a minor in music allows for greater integration and application of music in the world.  Students can pursue graduate study but also apply their knowledge of music to performing arts administration, music therapy, and business applications such as marketing and advertising.

You don't have to be a Music major or minor to perform at Ursinus College.  Our students consider their participation in one of the college's many music ensembles, both vocal and instrumental, as one of their most treasured college experiences.

Opportunities to perform and tour, as well as visits and master classes with professional musicians, make Ursinus an exciting place to get involved in music.  Students are offered numerous opportunities to express themselves and to develop their musical talents, and can choose concentrations in music theory or music history.

Whether your interest is instrumental or vocal, you will find a home in the Ursinus Music Department, and might one day find yourself touring with the Meistersingers in Europe (or singing the National Anthem at a Philadelphia Phillies game), jamming with the jazz ensemble during a Music at Noon concert or doing a command performance at a campus event.


Ursinus Meistersingers perform in cathedral on 2007 European tour.

The Ursinus College Meistersingers, the student choral ensemble, tour every spring, either in the U.S. or another country.
