Music Program Resources
The Mount music programs provide a strong foundational training for students seeking to pursue a career or further study in music and lead all students regardless of major, to the understanding that music is governed by the demands of a rigorous technical, intellectual, aesthetic, and spiritual process.
Students learn to reflect critically and independently on the creative and aesthetic process and product and have a meaningful and excellent musical experience at the Mount through practice, performance and reflection.
The music program provides students with many opportunities to perform and enhance their experience through:
The Lab Band consists of an auditioned group of individuals ... practice how often? credit? how get involved? contact? audio samples? Videos?
The Wind Ensemble consists of an auditioned group of individuals ... practice how often? credit? how get involved? contact? audio samples? Videos?
For over 50 years students representing every discipline of the University audition for the opportunity to sing with the Chorale. This is the Mount's largest choral ensemble, performing a wide variety of both sacred and secular repertoire. The Chorale performs at least one major concert per semester, and at special convocations or events throughout the acadeimc year. Some years the group has the chance to take their songs on the road, touring nationally or internationally. Additionally, the group has regular opportunities to collaborate with local and professional artists throughout the state of Maryland and Pennsylvania for larger scale performances, taking the choir to Frederick, Gettysburg, Baltimore to sing various choral masterworks.
All students at the Mount are welcome to audition to become a member, committing to three 1 ½ hour rehearsals per week. Chorale members may enroll in the ensemble as a class for 1 or 2 credits per semester., and music majors may use this experience to fulfill the ensemble performance requirement.
