Musicology and Ethnomusicology Colloquia
During the academic year, the Divisions of Musicology & Ethnomusicology and Theory/Composition sponsor the Music Scholars Lecture Series, which brings distinguished scholars to the campus to speak to graduate students. Students and faculty present their research at regular Friday-afternoon colloquia. Faculty and students also belong to and participate in the Capital Chapter of the American Musicological Society and the Mid-Atlantic Chapter of the Society for Ethnomusicology.
The UMD Summer Chorus is a campus/community chorus open to anyone in high school, college or beyond who wants to sing. Each year during three weeks in June and/or July the Summer Chorus rehearses and performs a major choral work with professional orchestra and soloists, led by one or more of the talented graduate students in the UMD Choral Conducting program. Past performances include Mozart’s Requiem, Haydn’s Harmoniemesse, Duruflé’s Requiem and Orff’s Carmina Burana.
