Letter from the Director
I am delighted you are applying to the Ithaca College School of Music. Since 1892, Ithaca has worked hard to earn its reputation as one of the top music schools in the country.
As you look further into our program, I am confident you will find a unique experience that few music schools can offer. Every day, our dedicated community of full-time faculty work to transform talented students into world-class professionals. Students study in state-of-the-art facilities that are as functional as they are inspirational. Over 25 ensembles present about 400 performances each year, both in our concert halls and on tour. Additionally, students live in a vibrant community surrounded by the stunning beauty of Ithaca and Cayuga Lake.
Add to this the fact that our graduates go on to incredible careers in performance, education, composition, recording arts, arts administration, and a wide variety of other music careers, and I am certain you will understand how Ithaca College lives up to its century-long reputation of excellence.
Thank you again for your interest in the Ithaca College School of Music. I look forward to getting to know you during this admission season.
