The Columbia College music department offers programs for a variety of skill levels and interests.
“Music is part of a well-rounded liberal arts education,” Diana Amos, Ph.D., music program coordinator, said.
For students with instrumental experience, the chamber and jazz ensembles focus on small instrumental groupings and welcome majors and non-majors alike. The chamber ensemble has rocked their classical repertoire for both on and off-campus events. Directed by Aletha Jacobs, jazz ensemble conductor, the ensemble caters to both vocalists and instrumentalists who want to improve and explore their jazz and improvisation skills. Classes are available in guitar and piano.
The chorus, concert choir and Hi C’s are available to vocalists. At the helm is Paula B. Wilson, director of choral activities.
The chorus is open to anyone, from the shower singer who wants to take it to the next level to the experienced musician. Students learn technique and music from a wide range of time periods and cultures.
Concert choir does require an audition, but don’t let that keep you from considering it. While it is home to many music majors and minors, the concert choir also has other majors represented among its ranks.
