Music Program - Westminster College - Fulton, Missouri
If you are looking to nurture your mind and feed your soul, then the Westminster music program is a good place to start. Music at Westminster integrates applied performance, acquired knowledge in history and theory, and interpretive analysis within the academic liberal arts framework. Not only do music courses develop artistic expression and critical appreciation, but students enrolled in Westminster music courses also synthesize those skills throughout their college learning experience. Through private lessons, choral ensembles, and history, literature, and theory courses, students are challenged to communicate effectively, reason critically, solve problems, and to work collaboratively. Music courses are designed to develop the judgment, analytic capacity, and expressive integrity that will enable all students to act as purveyors and transmitters of the musical arts throughout their lives.
The Wren Quire is a select mixed ensemble that is open to all Westminster College students through vocal audition. For three hours each week, this choir studies and rehearses choral music representing diverse styles and genres. The study, rehearsal, and performance of choral music by The Wren Quire features unique approaches to inter-disciplinary topics and relevant contemporary issues. The Wren Quire performs on- and off-campus and represents the mission and vision of Westminster College in annual choir tours.
The Blue Jay Glee Club and The Westminster Women’s Chorale provide further opportunities for students to experience great choral music and to build relationships with musicians from across various academic disciplines on campus. The Glee Club and Women’s Chorale meet twice a week for one hour.
