LSO and Choirs


Bachelor of Arts in Music

Students in the bachelor of arts program explore their musical curiosity and performance aspirations while investing their sharpest and deepest intellectual inquiries in other fields across the University. Students completing the BA are required to minor outside Lamont, and many students turn that minor into a second major.

The BA boasts a 3+2 program that allows students to complete both the bachelor of arts in music and a master of business administration (BA/MBA) in 5 years. Because the BA contains a performance component, an audition is required, and all students study individually with faculty.

Students can choose from any of the following areas of study:

  • Bassoon
  • Carillon
  • Cello
  • Clarinet
  • Composition
  • Double Bass
  • Euphonium
  • Flute
  • Guitar
  • Harp
  • Horn
  • Jazz (Bass, Drums, Guitar, Piano, Trumpet, Trombone, Voice, Woodwinds, Writing and Composing)
  • Oboe
  • Organ
  • Percussion
  • Piano
  • Saxophone
  • Trombone
  • Trumpet
  • Tuba
  • Viola
  • Violin
  • Voice (Classical or Musical Theater)
