The Society of Musical Arts is proud to be an organization that enables students to express themselves through this art form. It gives students the opportunity to de-stress from all the academic work they do during the week. As a bonus, students can show off their talents or even learn new skills through the club.
The members of the organization are delighted to have a safe and welcoming space for all students. The club motivates students and gives them confidence to try new endeavors musically, while ensuring they are comfortable with everything they do. It’s always a great time to spend a few hours a week with people who have the same interests and connections to music as themselves.
There are many times the different bands perform, including Homecoming, Sports Games, Club Events, and End of Semester Concerts. The jazz ensemble gives its concert on December 10 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., and the wind and string ensembles give a joint concert on December 13 from 1:30 p.m. to 3 p.m. Both concerts will take place at the Campus Center Atrium. Even if you’re not part of the organization, be sure to come out and support your talented peers!
