Music Department

Since 1881, Concordia University’s mission has been teaching and preparing students for careers and vocations that serve The Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod. Music has always been an integral part of that mission. The music department contributes to the spiritual, cultural, artistic, academic and co-curricular aspects to University life on campus. As the campus has grown in scope and size the music department has become more integral to the University mission.
