Department of Music



Welcome to the Department of Music at Longwood! We invite you to explore our website--you'll find that our interests are much the same as your own.

Music plays a vital role in life at Longwood, and our department is set for another busy and exciting year in 2014-15. Academically, we are proud to provide personalized instruction and exceptional musical experiences for our students as we prepare them for a professional career or graduate study.

Our department also serves as a primary cultural resource for Central Virginia. Through concerts and outreach, we touch the lives of thousands in a large geographic area. Please join us at some of our upcoming events, such as the traditional Holiday Dinner and Concert, the concerts of the Chamber Music Series, ensemble concerts, and recitals by faculty and students.

Music at Longwood is on the move. As chair, it's my privilege to work with the faculty, administration, staff, students, alumni, and patrons - all the people who are the program and share a vision for its excellence. Here's hoping we'll see you soon!
