"Music is the universal language of mankind." - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Is music your universal language? Your passion? Take your love for music to the next level, whether you're planning a career in music or hope to keep it as a lifelong interest. If it brings you joy, it's worth pursuing with all your heart and soul!
At Manchester, you can major in music and concentrate on the area that best suits your future: music education, music performance, theory and composition, or general music.
You'll be able to join one or more of Manchester's ensembles, such as jazz band, symphonic band or multiple vocal groups, including A Cappella Choir and an opera workshop.
Vocal Music Opportunities
Vocal ensembles often perform off campus and tours each year. Previous tours have included Carnegie Hall in New York and the Vatican in Rome.
Instrumental Music Opportunities
Along with MU ensembles, many students play in the Manchester Symphony Orchestra, along with local and professional musicians.
Whether you want to be a music teacher, performer, composer or any other career associated with music, Manchester has a track for your success.
