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 can 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.
