Arthur Satz Department of Music

Visit Group Website

A hallmark of the Arthur Satz Department of Music is that its students can broaden their horizons to encompass not only Western expressions of classical, jazz, and contemporary music, but also the music of other cultures.

The department is well served in this by an outstanding faculty that includes nationally and internationally recognized experts in musical theater, popular music, early music, and women composers. Faculty expertise ranges widely from Handel's operas to rock 'n' roll, from the music of black Americans to Kurt Weill, from 12-century composer Hildegard of Bingen to the evolution of popular music in Zimbabwe.

At Rochester, students also have opportunities to participate in performing ensembles. Some 400 students play or sing in a dozen musical organizations. Auditions for all of these groups take place during the first week of school. Read more
