Students with a passion for music who are not interest in formally studying music at Stritch are invited to participate and showcase their talents.

Many non-majors participate in both the University Concert Choir or Chamber Orchestra alongside Stritch music majors.

Students participating in music have the opportunity to cross over to other departments to pursue all of their passions within the arts. For example, a University Concert Choir participant may choose to also appear in theater productions and musicals.

Stritch students receive broad exposure to a wide range of the arts, which leads to a comprehensive arts education not commonly found at larger universities.


Students majoring in music are eligible to apply for a School of Visual and Performing Arts Scholarship. Amounts for this scholarship vary, and the scholarship is renewable for up to four years. Eligible students complete a scholarship application and then arrange for an audition with music department faculty.

Non-music majors who demonstrate an ability in music and participate in musical performance at Stritch are eligible for a Music Performance Scholarship, which is worth $1,000 per year, and is renewable for up to four years. Interested students audition with the music department chair.

More information about both of these scholarships can be found on the Scholarship Opportunities page.
