Department Facts Key Allegheny Benefits An important part of preparation for graduate study. A balanced background in performance, theory and history. An appreciation of the creative and recreative processes of music. Experience in using research and source materials to independently approach music study. An enhanced appreciation of the importance of the arts in general and in relationship to other disciplines and unusual combinations. Endorsements Approximately 15-20% of the entire student body is involved in music department programs. “Despite pursuing a career outside of music, I have found that the discipline of music theory is applicable in many areas, and that I am more well-rounded in my knowledge than the engineering majors I work with. The most important part of the department is the professors: my music advisor became my mentor, a friend, and taught me things beyond music, things that I use in my everyday life.” – Barbara Anderson Werner ’91, math and music major, now a programmer analyst/software engineer with Logicon Geodynamics, Inc. “During my years at Allegheny, I had the chance to perform as a soloist for the Civic Symphony on two occasions. Through the support and instruction I received from the music department, I was able to do something I had never believed I could do. Through the hours and months of rehearsals, practice and preparation, I discovered that, if I put my mind to it, I could accomplish anything.” – Jennifer Story ’92, psychology major. ” Allegheny provided a nurturing environment that allowed me to examine my areas of interest with outstanding, caring instructors, which eventually led to my changing my major to music and drama. One of my advisors for my two majors was honest about my skills and limitations. Not only did he instruct and motivate me, but he challenged me always to be the best I could be. ” – Steve Sheftz ’83, music and drama major “We were not merely instructed to open our ears to a type of music that we had dismissed, but instead we were shown by example how to appreciate and embrace its universal and sweeping beauty. Rather than memorizing history, biography and theory, we were taught a far greater and more important skill: the art of listening and understanding.” – Reid Ockerman ’95, English major Jonathan Hamilton, ’07 Worship and Creative Arts Director, Erie First Assembly Church Facilities Strengths Electronic music voice lab providing synthesized and sampled sounds, as well as digitized graphing of vocal sounds Technology lab integrated with music curriculum Music lab with computers, synthesizers, and student tutors Department housed in Arnold Hall in the Henderson Campus Center, with classrooms, rehearsal and practice rooms Performance space includes 1,700-seat Shafer Auditorium and 450-seat Ford Memorial Chapel Steinway pianos in concert venues on campus Student Research and Special Projects Every Alleghenian completes a Senior Project in his or her major field-a significant piece of original work, designed by each student and a faculty advisor, that demonstrates to employers and graduate schools the ability to work independently, to analyze and synthesize information, to write and speak persuasively and to complete a major assignment.

Three others have been guest conductors for Choir and Band concerts. Student was the musical director of three major musicals performed on campus as well as a community Christmas show; also conducted a major concert of the music of St. Saëns, featuring a combined Allegheny orchestra plus professional musicians. Students have been selected to participate the Small College Intercollegiate Band as part College Band Directors National Association Conference at the University of Minnesota, the University of Texas at Denton, the University of Texas at Austin and at Alice Tully Hall, New York City Learning Outcomes Music Department Educational Objectives The study of music enables consumers (listeners), re-creators (performers), and creators (composers) to increase their understanding of both the sounded and written aspects of musical language. Musical Materials Courses These courses concern the sound materials that are used to construct musical works, theirorganization into systems, and their interrelationships, which give rise to musical significance. Students are expected to recognize and reproduce the basic elements both in sound and in notation, both in isolation and in complete musical contexts. Musical Styles Courses These are courses that concern musical style; its historic progression through different times, places, and cultures; and specific composers and works that contributed to that progression. Students are expected to recognize by sound and sight the ways in which musical elements are combined as compositional conventions: within a particular work, within the output of a composer, and by different composers in a particular time or place. Music Performance Courses The courses focus on performance, the actual production of music in sound. Students are expected to apply the physical requirements of playing different instruments to the elements of the score and to interpretative decisions, as the potential of notation becomes the reality of sounded music. Students learn repertoire for soloists individually in applied lessons and repertoire for groups of performers in ensembles. Music Department Learning Outcomes Students are expected to: Understand tools and methods used in musical research and be able to analyze sources accurately and critically; present their research in a clear and coherent manner both orally and in writing Demonstrate a broad understanding of musical materials and styles both as categories of musical significance and with regard to specific works and composers, Demonstrate competence as a performer on the chosen instrument both in solo andensemble repertoire. Opportunities Performance Instrumental Ensembles: Civic Symphony, Jazz Band, Wind Ensemble, Wind Symphony. Vocal: Chamber Choir, College Choir, College Chorus, Women’s Ensemble. Each semester, qualified students are chosen to be concerto soloists with instrumental ensembles, or to give chamber music, solo or joint recitals. Independent Study With one-on-one faculty supervision, students can explore areas not offered in the standard curriculum. Examples of recent Independent Studies include: Synthetic Analogs of Vocal Sound Fourier Analysis of Vocal Formats Form and Analysis Piano Literature from Classical and Romantic Periods Debussy and Ravel Field Study Annually, the department schedules trips to hear visiting artists and performing groups in the nearby cities of Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Erie, and Buffalo. Touring Ensembles Some performing groups, including the Wind Symphony, the Wind Ensemble and the American Music Ensemble, go on tours, usually during semester breaks. Public Events In a typical semester, there are six or seven recitals by music students and faculty as well as three or four performances by visiting artists such as the Kronos Quartet, Richie Havens, the Boston Symphony Chamber Players, the Buffalo Philharmonic, and Ladysmith Black Mambazo. Some guests hold residencies in addition to performing on campus. The Alexander String Quartet, for example, has had annual residencies on campus since 1990. Honors and Prizes Flavia Davis Porter Award, to most talented instrumental musician Morten J. Luvaas Prize to choral music student Ethyl Moore Miller Prize to a junior or senior who shows exceptional progress and ability in musical studies and performance (first Miller Prize recipient was Dr. Richard A. Smith ’50, a chemistry major who has achieved great distinction as a chemist and professor of chemistry) Edith Mead Osborne Prize to the individual who shows marked musical ability, talent, or direction in voice, piano, or organ.
