Events & Productions

Because of the School’s intentionally small size and exclusive focus on undergraduate education, students have exceptional access to a rich variety of performance opportunities and are valued contributors and participants from the start of the first year at DePauw. The School’s robust performance calendar, which offers more than 200 events annually, features students in solo recitals, chamber music and major ensemble concerts, opera and musical theatre productions. Domestic and international concert tours, competitions, and master classes with renowned guest artists from around the world, present additional opportunities to perform.
