CBU offers one of the most progressive music programs on the West Coast. Beyond merely entertaining audiences, students are encouraged to engage passionately in their music—to truly communicate a mastery of experience and emotion. Students also have the opportunity to share music in a number of venues, ranging from intimate church sanctuaries to celebrated concert halls. With each performance, students develop the charisma to communicate personally with the audience and take them to a higher level of self-discovery and awareness.
