We believe students use their time as undergraduates to discover and explore the musicians they are and will become. Be it opera or hip hop, violin or harmonica, students collaborate with professors whose own interests range from world music to electronica.

Students interested in performing can take advantage of the department’s established programs, like our choirs, orchestra, and percussion ensemble, and Lake Forest faculty encourage students to start their own music groups of any genre.

With the Lyric Opera, Chicago Symphony Orchestra, and numerous jazz, blues, folk, and house music venues nearby, Chicago provides opportunities for music enjoyment, study, and internships.
