Message from the Dean
Welcome to the Don Wright Faculty of Music. Our students are among 700 of the brightest and most talented young artist scholars, who come to study in one of the many undergraduate and graduate programs offered by the Faculty. With the faculty and staff, they are committed to excellence in creative and scholarly work. I invite you to consider joining our community, one that encourages students to imagine, explore, and take risks.
Our goals at the DWFOM include (1) providing the highest quality of creative and scholarly experiences for students in all undergraduate and graduate programs, (2) providing interactions with artists and scholars known nationally and internationally, and (3) making public that which we do through artistic and scholarly performances, recordings, publications, lectures, and presentations. The faculty, who collectively are recognized nationally and internationally through their scholarly publications and papers, CDs, and performances, continue to serve as role models for our students and showcase their commitment to artistic and scholarly excellence. Finally, nationally and internationally renowned guest artists grace our stages and contribute to the musical culture we expect at the Faculty of Music.
The Don Wright Faculty of Music is situated in a research-intensive university on a campus that is inviting and striking. It situates the Faculty of Music in an environment that enables students to grow artistically and academically. Do come and visit!
