School of Music Events

Because of the School’s intentionally small size and exclusive focus on undergraduate education, students have exceptional access to a rich variety of performance opportunities and are valued contributors and participants from the start of the first year at DePauw. The School’s robust performance calendar, which offers more than 200 events annually, features students in solo recitals, chamber music and major ensemble concerts, opera and musical theatre productions. Domestic and international concert tours, competitions, and master classes with renowned guest artists from around the world, present additional opportunities to perform.

Green Guest Artist Concerts

Our season is full of renowned performers from around the world. During 2018-19 season members of the School of Music welcome Bang on a Can All-Stars, Conspirare, New York Voices, the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra with cello soloist Julian Steckel, and the International Contemporary Ensemble. Check out what we have to offer in our Green Guest Artist Concert Series.

Artists-in-Residence: International Contemporary Ensemble

Recipients of the American Music Center’s Trailblazer Award and the Chamber Music America/ASCAP Award for Adventurous Programming, ICE’s 35 members are soloists, chamber musicians, commissioners and collaborators with the foremost musical artists of our time.

Music of the 21st Century

Music of the 21st Century is an annual guest residency that brings some of the world’s most outstanding composers to DePauw School of Music. This year, we welcome Bright Sheng to campus.

Opera and Musical Theatre

he School of Music collaborates with the Department of Communication and Theatre to present a musical each fall. In the spring, we feature a fully staged opera production. The 2018/19 season features productions of Sister Act: The Musical and Massenet’s Cinderella.
