Students of music prepare for advanced study in music and a strong foundation for most occupations in the wider music industry. There is a clear emphasis on academic qualification, but there is room also for enhanced performance activity. There are many opportunities for students to perform in solo and ensemble settings and to integrate their academic experience with professional activity. Students will also have opportunities through vocal and instrumental ensembles, and music theatre productions for all those on campus who are interested in the performing arts.
With the expansion of the arts industry, both nationally and internationally, the opportunities for employment for music graduates are wide and highly varied.
In music, these include the following: teaching (elementary and secondary school/university/studio); performing (professional, community and church-sponsored venues), composing, conducting, editing and consulting in both commercial and non-commercial situations; librarianship, research and publishing; recording engineering and editing; music sales and retailing; arts management; instrument repair and maintenance.
Georgia College has four choral ensembles, University Chorus, Women’s Ensemble, the Max Noah Singers and the Cat’s Meow. The university also has several performance ensembles, Wind Symphony, Orchestra, Jazz Band and the multiple Chamber Ensembles, which perform throughout the year at various locations.
