About Ohio Wesleyan

Located in Delaware near the geographical center of the State of Ohio, Ohio

Wesleyan University has for over one hundred years occupied a distinguished place

among the educational institutions of the United States. It was established in 1842

by the Methodist Church. Since its founding the Methodists have continued to maintain

great interest in it, and to give financial aid to its program.

The men and women of the faculty, of high character and academic training, are,

first of all, good teachers. The University, which is fully accredited by the Association

of American Colleges and Secondary Schools, and the National Association of Schools

of Music, is regarded by graduate and professional schools as supplying a fine prepara-

tion for their work. The following degrees are conferred: Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor

of Music, Bachelor of Fine Arts, and Master of Arts. In the music area, majors are

offered in piano, voice, organ, school music (choral and instrumental), and in an

orchestral or band instrument, theory, or church music.

The Department of Music is located in Sanborn Hall, a building of some seventy-

five rooms. Here we find a recital hall, class rooms, rehearsal rooms for music organi-

zations, practice studios, teaching studios, and the music library. The library houses,

in addition to books, recordings, and orchestral, band and choral scores.

The Department is organized to give instruction, not only to those majoring in

music, but also to those interested in music as an avocation. The fields of study include

piano, organ, violin, cello, woodwind and brass instruments, percussion, theory, compo-

sition, history, and literature and appreciation of music. The music staff are gifted

specialists who are performers as well as fine teachers. The instruction is geared to

professional standards with a view to training majors to take an active part in the

music life of their generation as performers, private teachers, college instructors, school

music supervisors, church organists and ministers of music, arrangers, and conduc-

tors.

Choral performance has been an important activity at Ohio Wesleyan since the

establishment of the Music Department in 1877. With the upsurge in choral singing

in the colleges of America following the First World War, the Ohio Wesleyan Choir was

founded, becoming a group dedicated to the development of a singing technique and style

capable of performing the great choral masterpieces, both secular and sacred, from

the Renaissance to contemporary times. Recently a distinguished New York composer

and critic writing in the AMERICAN ORGANIST called it "one of America's finest stu-

dent choirs." Several contemporary composers have dedicated compositions to it, and

the group has given premier performances of other contemporary works as well. The

Choir has made forty-seven annual tours which have taken it into all parts of the United

States and Canada. This is the Choir's second trip abroad.
