The DePauw University School of Music presents over 150 events annually, ranging from major guest artists to student recitals, and main-stage productions and performances in the concert hall to the Downtown Farmers' Market.

Innovative performance is quickly becoming the coin of the realm in the School of Music. Whether inviting the audience to sit on stage, dance or even lie down, performing without a conductor, performing with video projection, or presenting "shuffle" concerts as if heard on an iPod, the production style of DePauw ensembles is innovative and widely varied.


DePauw Opera

International stage director and designer Joachim Schamberger, a German-born artist known for his development and use of virtual scenic design, has produced DePauw Opera since joining the School of Music faculty in 2012. Whether staging a new or an existing text, Schamberger's work makes innovative use of projection technology to create scenes and special effects uniquely adapted to each production. 

DePauw Opera's 2012 production of Benjamin Britten’s Albert Herring featured multimedia projections that evolved with time of day and the dramatic action. In 2013, Strauss's Die Fledermaus was updated to take place in situ at DePauw University during the 175th anniversary celebration of the University. These projections featured iconic campus locations, including views of East College and a party set in the Great Hall of the Judson and Joyce Green Center for the Performing Arts. A production of Monteverdi's boundary-defying 17th-century opera The Coronation of Poppea, using Schamberger's virtual scenic designs, is planned for February 5-8, 2015.

Holiday Gala

Each year the School produces a communitywide Holiday Gala, an evening of seasonal music featuring a variety of large works, chamber music, soloists, and a few surprises. In 2014, the annual gala will be presented on December 6 and 7. One of the can't-miss events of the season, the Saturday night performance includes a full-length concert. The Sunday matinee is a reduced program for families, with a visit from Santa Claus.
