    The School of Performing Arts offers a rich variety of studies in music, ranging from music history and theory to composition and performance to education and industry techniques. Students benefit from a variety of vocal and instrumental ensemble opportunities such as Concert Choir, Symphony Orchestra and Jazz Combos, and private lessons for voice, instruments and composition. Students collaborate closely with a remarkably diverse set of faculty, who are renowned conductors, directors, performers and producers whose work has earned local, regional, national and international accolades.

    The school plays a prominent role in the Fargo-Moorhead music scene, through active faculty involvement in solo performances, professional groups and the Fargo-Moorhead Symphony Orchestra, and through exceptional musical performances by students or visiting artists as part of the Performing Art Series offered throughout the year. Students are poised for great professional development through on- and off-campus performance opportunities as well as music industry courses that prepare students to master advanced production techniques in the studio. The immersive, hands-on learning experiences combined with one-on-one mentorship from expert faculty, provide an outstanding education for graduates of the program to excel as musicians in education, production or performance settings.
