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 2019/20 season members of the School of Music welcome Postmodern Jukebox, the Vijay Iyer Sextet, tenor Lawrence Brownlee, the Israeli Chamber Project and Third Coast Percussion. Check out what we have to offer in our Green Guest Artist Concert Series.
Artists-in-Residence: The Israeli Chamber Project
The Israeli Chamber Project brings together some of today’s most distinguished musicians from Israel and beyond to perform compelling concerts and deliver educational programs. In March, the ensemble celebrates Beethoven’s 250th birthday with two of his most dynamic early works featured together and paired with a later revolutionary voice in Bartok’s epic Piano Quintet.
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 Susan Botti to campus.
Opera and Musical Theatre
The 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 2019/20 season features productions of A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder and DePauw Opera productions of Ottorino Resphighi's Sleeping Beauty and Engelbert Humperdinck's Hansel and Gretel.
