Musicians of the Future
The DePauw University School of Music provides an excellent musical and intellectual foundation that prepares undergraduate musicians to be adaptive leaders, equipped to actively engage their communities and pursue a breadth of career paths.
We believe artists should embrace diversity, foster inclusivity, and raise cultural awareness, and this shapes our community and curriculum.
In partnership with DePauw’s College of Liberal Arts, we encourage students to integrate creative and practical musical skills with critical thinking and intellectual inquiry, empowering our graduates for a lifetime of learning.

Green Center, Thompson Recital Hall
Before taking a brief hiatus for spring break, the School of Music will present its final Faculty Select series concert of the season. Joining music faculty member Ming-Hui Kuo will be guest artist and award-winning percussionist Yun-ju Pan, from Michigan State University, along with five outstanding DePauw alumni and student musicians—flutist Eleanor Price ’17; percussionists Josiah Rushing ’13, Patrick Speranza ’13 and Zach Suchanek ’18; and clarinetist Natalia Fumero ’19.
Tuesday's concert will open with American composer Libby Larson’s Corker, a chamber work for clarinet and percussion, followed by Robert Paterson’s Duo for Flute and Marimba and Dave Hollinden’s jazzy Surface Tension, a duet for two multi-percussionists performing on a total of 20 different instruments.
