The core curricular mission of the Department includes a belief in the abiding value of musical performance for all undergraduates. To that end, Penn's Department of Music sponsors a wide range of professional and student performance activities in a wide variety of musical traditions that are open to all members of the university community. The Department also enjoys a long association with the performance of new music, boasting among its faculty some of America's most highly regarded composers. Applied Music (Music 010) offers a special program of instruction in vocal and instrumental solo and chamber music performance for music majors and minors. For non-music majors and minors, the Blutt College House Music Program offers subsidized private lessons and coachings.
Whether you are interested in attending a concert, participating in one of our ensembles, or taking private lessons, we hope you enjoy all that Penn has to offer.
