Campus performing ensembles may be taken for credit and are open to all students and community members. Our performing groups are the University Chorus under the direction of Dr. Christy Talbott, and the Jazz Band, directed by Paul Sucherman.
In addition to a winter and a spring concert, these groups perform in a variety of off-campus venues as well.
All students, regardless of major, may choose from a comprehensive selection of classroom coursework in Music, including Music Appreciation, Jazz History, The History of Rock and Roll, Vocal Techniques, and others. Online course options are also available.
For students planning for a future in professional music, UW-Sheboygan offers a full complement of courses for the first two years of a music major, as well as participation in the Guaranteed Transfer program within the UW System following completion of the associate degree. Major course offerings include first- and second-year Music Theory, Aural Skills, Applied Lessons (instrument or voice), Applied Piano, and Ensemble Performance.
