World class musicians influence world class thinkers.
The University offers a music concentration and ensures the presence of music on its
campus through regular music programs and a variety of activities arranged by the
Music Department. The UD Chorale is widely recognized for its quality and performs
repertoire ranging from Gregorian chant to 20th century works. Applied lessons in
piano, voice, violin and cello are available and instruction in other instruments
can be arranged through the Music Office. Opportunities for performance include monthly
student recitals, special concerts, Lyric Theater productions, liturgies and campus
visit weekends. Additionally, guest artist performances at UD provide the opportunity
for students to hear world-class musicians on campus and students have the chance
to attend concerts in the Dallas- Fort Worth area, arranged through the Music Department.
The goals of the Music Department are to provide students with opportunities to explore
and create music from a variety of genres and to prepare those students who choose
to pursue the music concentration to be proficient in the artistic, theoretical and
historical aspects of the language of music.
The Music Department is proud to offer the Summer Music Academy for students in grades 7-12, June 12-16, 2017.
