This outstanding music curriculum delivered by award-winning faculty prepares our students to enter a variety of professional fields after graduation or continue their studies in top graduate programs throughout the country.
The Hall-Musco Conservatory of Music offers the Bachelor of Arts in music and pre-professional programs leading to the Bachelor of Music in composition, music education, and performance (conducting, instrumental, and vocal). There are many performance options for students who wish to pursue a Music Performance major, including multiple choral groups, Opera Chapman, and small instrumental ensembles to the full-scale Chapman University Big Band and Jazz Combo, Chapman University Wind Symphony and The Chapman Orchestra. Our music performance spaces range from intimate recital halls to our 88,000 square-foot, state-of-the-art performance space, Musco Center for the Arts, which features an intimate seating chamber of 1,044 seats on three levels and a full-scale stage house capable of grand spectacle or lush symphonic sound with its unique orchestral shell.
Chapman University first offered the Bachelor of Music degree in 1930-31 and has strived to present a thorough music curriculum blended with liberal learning ever since. The University’s music facilities compare with institutions far larger in size and offer a fine setting for both instruction and musical presentations. The Hall-Musco Conservatory of Music is an accredited institutional member of the National Association of Schools of Music.
