Program Highlights

Performance Opportunities

Students perform in a weekly masterclass. The session culminates with participation in a final recital, which is part of the weekly recital series, Chapel Organ.

Dendrinos Chapel and Recital Hall

The beautiful Dendrinos Chapel and Recital Hall is home to our recently refurbished 50-rank Reuter concert pipe organ. The sound at Dendrinos is impeccable and inspiring, especially to organists. In addition to the recital hall, organ students have access to mechanical action practice organs. Learn more about the Dendrinos Chapel and Recital Hall.

Our state-of-the-art 60,000 square-foot music facility has two 3,500 square-foot rehearsal halls, two recording studios—which allow for rehearsal and performance recordings in multiple venues on campus—multiple ensemble and practice rooms, and individual faculty teaching studios. Learn more about The Music Center.

Studying organ here has been a true honor, as well as a lot of fun. I am one of two organ majors this summer, and the personal instruction has helped me advance my skills. I've had so much fun this summer and can't wait to come back next year!
