The Carthage Music Department creates challenging, humanizing, transforming and enriching opportunities that advance musical excellence and foster lifelong musical engagement.
An audition before members of the music faculty is required for entrance into the music major. At the end of their sophomore year, all music majors are evaluated for junior standing. They must show they have fulfilled repertoire requirements in their performance area through the sophomore year, and they must satisfactorily perform 15-20 minutes of music from that list. If this junior-standing jury is insufficient in either repertoire or performance, the faculty may admit the student provisionally to junior standing in the major, or advise the student to discontinue the music major.
Current students: You should follow the official College Catalog from the year you entered Carthage and work with your advisors and the department chair to ensure all requirements are met.
