Notes & Reviews:

Since its founding in 1871, West Chester University of Pennsylvania has offered a music curriculum. The School of Music boasts 80 faculty members who proudly serve its more than 500 students and is the only School of Music in the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education. The mission of the School of Music at WCU is to create a learning environment that provides the highest order of education in all major aspects of music, to establish a foundation for lifelong growth in music, and to offer programs and degrees that are tradition based but future oriented. In pursuing this mission, we reaffirm our commitment to diversity within the School of Music. Our faculty members strive to be inspiring teachers as well as musical and intellectual leaders. Further, we endeavor to expand the music opportunities available to all students and to enhance the quality of our community's musical life. The choral program at West Chester University has a long and proud tradition. We are an important part of the University's cultural life, with 250 or more students enrolled each semester in our eight ensembles. Each year, thousands of people hear a West Chester choir - not only on campus but through off-campus performances throughout Pennsylvania, New York, and Washington, along the East Coast, and in California, Florida, the desert Southwest, and Europe. Beyond concerts, we regularly bring to campus nationally renowned guest composers and clinicians, have an active ACDA student chapter, and offer educational workshops for teachers and high school students and a graduate M.M. degree in choral conducting. Most importantly, those involved in the WCU choral program find community - a place where singing abounds, where artistry flourishes, and where lifelong relationships begin.
