The music program offers a variety of courses in the history, theory, composition and performance of music, including cross-cultural and technological aspects. Performance is encouraged through numerous student recitals, the tutorial, and participation in the Chatham University Choir. Students have opportunities to study privately with members of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra and on occasion may present public performances with their teachers. The student majoring in music also may choose to focus on other aspects of the discipline, including creative projects. The cross-disciplinary opportunities afforded by the College curriculum allow for imaginative program design.
