The B.A. in Performing Arts - Music Concentration allows you to create your own future in the Performing Arts.  Our innovative Music degree combines performance (lessons and ensembles), music theory, music history, music technology (Finale, MIDI, recording), and arts administration (music business, entrepreneurship, and marketing).  Choose from more than 20 large and small ensembles within our band, choir, and orchestra programs such as Tiger Band, CU Singers, String Quartet, Steel Band, and Bluegrass Ensemble among others.  Music students collaborate with Theatre and Audio students and get hands-on experience in our nationally ranked professional roadhouse, the Brooks Center for the Performing Arts, our on-site learning laboratory.  Students also participate in masterclasses, develop connections with professional artists, and work alongside dynamic faculty who are leaders in their field.   Most importantly, our students are prepared for today’s highly competitive job market after graduation.
