PROGRAM NOTES

 

MUSIC

Applied Music - Registration & Fee
 

These are private lessons taught by an instructor on a one-to-one basis.  Lessons are given once a week and do not count as a fifth course.  There is an additional charge of $570.00 for lessons each semester.  Students must register with the Music Department during the first week of the semester to receive a lesson schedule and be assigned an instructor.  Students who do not register with the Music Department during the first week of the semester cannot be guaranteed lesson space.  If an instrument is unavailable at the College, the student is responsible for its rental fee.  The Department cannot stow most instruments because of space constraints.

 
Concert Chorale and I Cantori
 

Concert Chorale is a non-auditioned mixed ensemble open to all students.

 

Membership in I Cantori is by audition only.  Students wishing to audition for I Cantori must contact Dr. T. J. Harper during the first week of the semester to schedule an audition appointment.
