The College of Arts and Architecture

Welcome from the Director

David Frego

Welcome to the School of Music. The new recital and rehearsal halls are open for business and we are engaged with multiple performances every day. Many of you will be giving your senior recital in the new spaces. I look forward to each and every performance.

For potential students, please look at the Penn State School of Music and consider visiting the University Park Campus. We encourage students to take advantage of coaching sessions by our artist faculty and to sit in on ensemble rehearsals. This helps to establish your vision on where your music home will be for the next four years.

Penn State is a destination university for research and creative activities and we value diversity, inclusion and equity in our mission. The School of Music faculty and students partner with artists and researchers in many disciplines; bridging the arts and making music even more relevant in the sciences and humanities. As an accredited member of the National Association of Schools of Music, we strive to develop quality and innovative programing for our students. To learn more about our mission and outreach programs, please explore our website. Also, please contact me if you have questions or if I can lead you to a person who may help answer your questions.
