Whether you plan to major in music or pursue musical interests along with your other studies, you’ll find Hanover’s active music program enriches the lives of everyone in the community.
Majors and non-majors alike participate fully in private lessons, solo performances and group performances. Concert Band, College-Community Orchestra, Saxophone Ensemble, Concert Choir and Chamber Singers perform throughout the academic year, both on campus and, in some cases, on international tours. If you are a music major, you can choose between a choral or instrumental program and gain practical experience that launches your career or graduate studies.
