Music is alive and well at Concordia University Chicago. Four choirs, orchestra, two bands, jazz band, and Cougar Band, plus other ensembles offer plenty of opportunities for participation.  Majors and non-majors can take applied lessons in all orchestral instruments, voice, piano, organ, harpsichord, guitar, harp, and composition.

Majors include liberal arts music, music education, church music, and an innovative combined degree in music with an emphasis in business.  An outstanding faculty, new practice rooms, and a prime suburban location near Chicago combine to create a superb environment for students to grow and thrive.

An active concert schedule provides opportunities for performance and enrichment.  Scholarships are available by audition for both majors and non-majors. Please see the information under Music Scholarships.
