Why study Music: Concentration Vocal Performance at APSU?

Students who wish to develop their potential as vocalists will benefit from the rich training and the myriad of performance opportunities offered at APSU as soloists, in choirs, or in opera productions.

The Vocal Performance Concentration prepares students for careers in opera houses, musical theaters, jazz clubs, recording studios, concert halls, theme parks, cruise ships, with touring companies, military ensembles, chamber ensembles, and as a soloist. Performers might also teach private lessons in schools, private studios, music stores, or at the collegiate level. Finally, many performance alumni pursue graduate degrees or develop portfolio careers that include conducting, composing, arranging, music theory, pedagogy, or arts management.

Austin Peay's applied faculty and ensemble directors are second to none. Our department is host to world-class performers including leading opera singers, premier soloists, symphony musicians, Nashville's top recording studio session players, chamber musicians, and world-renowned clinicians. Our ensemble directors have established a tradition of excellence in vocal ensembles and opera productions. And all Music Department faculty are committed to serving our students as educators and mentors.
