Music Department


2022 Academic Festival Program

The Skidmore Music Department is rooted in the liberal arts tradition: we believe that music is an essential component of human experience and a unique vehicle for artistic, intellectual, and personal growth. By offering a range of opportunities, including classes, ensembles, lessons, and events, we strive to equip students of all backgrounds to experience, explore, and understand human culture and creativity through musical study.
