The Music Department at Washington and Lee offers a major and a minor in music. Music majors receive a Bachelors of Arts, choosing a sequence focused on Musicology, Performance or Theory/Composition. Participation in the Department's instrumental and choral ensembles along with private instruction for all instruments and voice is open to all W&L students for credit.
The Department offers numerous concerts each year including those by student ensembles, our Concert Guild series, and Sonoklect, the new music/jazz series.
Department ensembles regularly tour the United States, Europe, Asia and South America.
Housed in the John and Anne Wilson Hall, the facilities available to the Music Department are state-of-the-art.
The main performance venue is a 300-seat Concert Hall which plays host not only to the University's many student, faculty, and ensemble groups, but also world renowned concert artists.
