Tramm Concert

“I have a broad range of experience in both the professional and academic musical worlds. I draw upon this inspiration to provide fully realized musical performances that engage the performers to perform to the best of their abilities, both technically and emotionally.”

Jason Tramm
Assistant Professor and Director of Choral Activities.


Students are offered a range of courses in music history, theory, technology, and conducting, as well as a diverse selection of ensembles and private lessons on their instrument or voice type. Juries, workshops, and recitals throughout the academic year offer opportunities for solo performing experience, and the major in music culminates in a public senior recital. Students are given exposure to leading performing artists through concerts presented by our distinguished Arts Council, and related clinics and master classes provide opportunities for hands-on work.


Many students in the Music Education and Music Performance programs have won honors through internships at top agencies at which they are now employed.
