Music: Vocal, Instrumental Ensembles, and Organ
Vocal and instrumental experiences on campus provide a wealth of opportunities for musically-inclined students. The University offers student activities, musical organizations and variable-credit course options in both solo and ensemble music performance. These experiences include class voice, classroom piano and guitar, as well as ensembles such as the Chapel Ensemble, Pep Band, Jazz Ensemble, and Wind Ensemble. Our liturgical music program offers student vocalists the opportunity to participate in the ministry of cantor at JCU’s regular Sunday liturgies.
The Louise Mellen organ, one of the very few Spanish-style period pipe organs in the United States, is located in Saint Francis Chapel. Built in Brussels by Patrick Collon, it provides a rare and quality instrument for organists of all abilities.
