A liberal arts program of Carleton’s distinction requires first-class spaces to support music teaching, practice, and performance programs—including intersections with other disciplines—and to promote students’ vibrant musical endeavors. Nearly a third of all Carleton students are involved in curricular or co-curricular musical activities, ranging from bands, orchestras, choirs and chamber ensembles to an ever-emerging array of a cappella groups, rock bands, musical theater troupes, electronic composers, and multimedia artists.
