Music students at Lake Forest explore the musicians they are and will become. Through opera or hip hop, violin or harmonica, students collaborate with professors whose own interests range from world music to electronica.

Performing ensembles include:

  • Women’s Choir
  • Concert Choir
  • Concert Band
  • Concert Orchestra
  • West African Drumming Ensemble
  • Jazz Ensemble
  • Experimental Music Group
  • Chamber Ensembles

You don’t need to be a music major to join an ensemble.

With the Lyric Opera, Chicago Symphony Orchestra, and numerous jazz, blues, folk, and house music venues nearby, Chicago provides opportunities for music enjoyment, study, and internships.
