When students study music at Stonehill, they experience classes and ensembles that stimulate the imagination and inspire creativity. And they do it with the guidance of faculty who provide individual coaching and instruction, enabling them to reach maximum potential.

Students in the music program have the chance to immerse themselves in a variety of musical experiences:

  • Perform in vocal and instrumental ensembles
  • Make a bold musical statement in Piano Workshop
  • Learn about music history, theory, composition and world music
  • Experience the excitement of a field trip to the Boston Symphony Orchestra, New England Conservatory of Music/Jordan Hall, Boston Museum of Fine Arts as well as concerts, museums and musical theatre shows in New York City

Stonehill College students participating in the Latin American Music History course have traveled to both Mexico City and Guatemala as part of their sophomore Learning Community where they studied the music and culture of the Aztecs and the Mayans.

A Focus on Performance

The Music Program sponsors both large and small performance opportunities:

  • Stonehill College Orchestra
  • Stonehill College Concert Band
  • Stonehill Collegiate Chorale
  • Stonehill College Guitar Ensemble

Collegiate Chorale

Founded in 1986, the Stonehill Collegiate Chorale is comprised of Stonehill undergraduates, faculty, staff, and experienced singers from the local community. The Chorale is committed to musical excellence, inclusive community, and a positive, affirming environment for singers of all backgrounds.
