Prospective undergraduate students interested in majoring in music should consider visiting the College of Music. It is recommended that students attend CU Music Day, or consider scheduling an individual visit.
CU Music Day: Wednesday, Nov. 11, 2020
The College of Music invites you to join us during CU Music Day. Events will include Q&A sessions, a sample lecture, open classes and rehearsals, campus and music building tours, and an open studio hour where students can meet and speak with faculty members. CU Music Day is free and open to all high school students, but you need to register to attend. Registration will open by Oct. 15 and an updated agenda for 2020 will be posted by November 1. We expect a very similar structure to the day, however Music Day 2020 will be held virtually. This will allow you to join in Zoom sessions and see classes or speak with faculty and students in real time without the need for travel!
As part of an individual visit, with advanced notice, students can choose to review the music application and admissions process, connect with a current student, and/or meet with a faculty member. Start by setting up a visit through CU Undergraduate Admissions. After you’ve set up your campus tour and admissions presentation, you may set up music-specific meetings here. In response to COVID-19, the College of Music is not taking in-person visitors. However, we are more than happy to set up virtual meetings, tours, and lessons. We look forward to connecting with you! If you have questions, please call 720-591-3755.
We have several virtual information sessions planned for throughout Fall 2020, focusing on the College of Music, CU Boulder in general and specific music programs.
The College of Music also hosts hundreds of free events every year featuring student, faculty and guest performers and music scholars. This year, due to COVID-19, most events will still go on, but in a streamed format. Check out the CU Presents Digital website for upcoming live and recorded streamed events and plan to catch one at home!
