Westminster College Hosts Virtual ‘Music Major for a Day’

NEW WILMINGTON, Pa. — On Oct. 19 and 20, high school students interested in pursuing music can attend a virtual Music Major for a Day event at Westminster College.

Sponsored by Westminster’s School of Music, the two-day event is open to current high school sophomores, juniors and seniors considering a major in music.

“Although we cannot have Music Major for a Day in person this year, prospective students can still tune in virtually over Zoom and interact with Westminster students and faculty in classes, music ensembles and information sessions,” said Dr. Daniel Perttu, professor of music and chair of the School of Music. “Prospective students will have opportunities to interact with Westminster students, just like in the ‘in-person’ Music Major for a Day, and they will still be able to meet with Westminster professors directly. For all of these reasons, our virtual Music Major for a Day will still give prospective students a great idea of what being a Music Major at Westminster is really like.”

Oct. 19 will be for students considering a concentration in woodwinds, brass and percussion, with options to sit in on ensembles, including the Symphonic Band and Wind Ensemble. Oct. 20 will be for vocal music, keyboard and strings, with class options such as concert choir, men’s and women’s chorus, and orchestra.

Westminster is an accredited member of the National Association of Schools of Music.

The Music Major for a Day events are free, but reservations are due by Oct. 8. To register or to learn more about Westminster’s School of Music, visit Westminster.edu/music.
