Music

Providing unique learning opportunities and cultural experiences, Stevenson's Music Program greatly enhances campus life. No major is offered in Music, however a number of musical ensembles and courses are available. Interested students are encouraged to participate in the University's Music Program as an extracurricular activity or for course credit. Auditions are required for participation in the ensembles, but students must have prior background, either singing in a chorus or performing instrumental music. Student musicians can choose from several different ensembles:

Greenspring Valley Orchestra

Directed by Robert J. Suggs, D.M.A., Professor of Music, the orchestra has become one of the most respected amateur organizations of its type in the Baltimore area. The orchestra performs winter and spring concerts as well as a popular outdoor summer series. It is an advanced ensemble specializing in the performance of standard classics and well as pop favorites.

Jazz/Fusion Ensemble

Directed by Jared Denhard, this ensemble plays music in the style of blues, traditional, swing, Latin, bebop, world music and jazz-rock. Emphasis is placed on improvisation, playing published charts, and original compositions and arrangements.

Chorus

Directed by Robert J. Suggs, D.M.A. and Jared Denhard, Adjunct Instructor of Music, the chorus performs the widest possible variety of choral music, including Renaissance madrigals, classical works, show tunes, and contemporary popular music.
