Historical Note

The Department of Music at the College of William and Mary offers programs of study in music composition, theory, performance and musicology. Most of the department's students do not major in music, but rather study music as a life-enriching activity; as such, the program is designed to function as an integral component of the undergraduate curriculum. At the same time, however, the department prepares many of its students for further academic work in the discipline, and in the last ten years has sent graduates off to some of the best musicology, composition, and performance graduate programs in the country.Large ensembles include the William and Mary Symphony Orchestra, the Wind Symphony, the Concert Choir, and the Women's Chorus. Medium-sized ensembles include the Jazz Ensemble, Botetourt Chamber Singers, Appalachian String Band, Middle Eastern Music Ensemble, Early Music Ensemble, Gallery Players, Performance Art Ensemble, and Indonesian Gamelan. In addition, the department regularly offers eight to ten other small ensembles, featuring various combinations of string, percussion, and wind instruments.The department's academic faculty as of 2007 included three composer/theorists, two ethnomusicologists, three music historians, and four conductors.
