Performances beyond Ithaca form an important part of the mission of the School of Music. The opportunity to make music for an increasingly wider audience is an integral part of our students' training–and pushes them to new heights as musicians. Visit our Upcoming Tours page to learn more about School of Music tours in your area.
Tours have allowed our students the opportunity to bring music to cities around the world–from New York to Washington and several trips overseas. Our ensembles have won critical acclaim for their work in New York City at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center's Alice Tully and Avery Fisher Halls, Symphony Space, and St. Patrick's Cathedral. They've also performed at the Royal Academy of Music in London and in medieval churches and concert venues in Ireland, including the National Concert Hall in Dublin.
Students often perform off campus as a soloist or in area ensembles, as well as at regional and national conferences and festivals. Several ensembles have performed at the New York State School Music Association Winter Conference, College Band Director's National Association, American Choral Directors Association, and other conferences each year.
