2024 Recognition Ceremony

Every spring, the College of Music celebrates the passage of our graduates into the company of alumni artists + scholars.


On May 9, 2024, we’ll come together to recognize the accomplishments of our fall 2023 and spring 2024 graduates ... with pomp + circumstance! In addition to the College of Music recognition ceremony which will also be livestreamed, the Class of 2024 will be invited to participate in the campuswide commencement ceremony held each spring at Folsom Field stadium; the approximately 90-minute university commencement ceremony begins at 8:30 a.m., this year featuring Steve Wozniak—co-founder of Apple and a technology entrepreneur—as commencement speaker. No tickets required.
