Roche Guest Artist Series

This season celebrates more than three decades of the Roche Guest Artist Series, made possible through the generosity of the TERRY AND MARGARET M. ROCHE FAMILY.  Since its founding in 1988, the Roche Guest Artist Series has presented in our exceptional performance space, the Dr. Barrett and Catherine Walker Recital Hall, providing the greater Erie community free access to a unique mix of artists performing contemporary, jazz, renaissance, baroque, renaissance,  and world music.

D'Angelo Department of Music

As an accredited institutional member of the National Association of Schools of Music, the D’Angelo Department of Music offers five degrees: B.M. Performance, B.M. Music Education, B.M. Music Therapy, B.M. Composition, and B.A. in Music. A Music Minor is open to non-Music Major students. The B.A. Music degree allows flexibility to add a minor or a double major. The B.M. Music Therapy major is often paired with a minor in social sciences or health care sciences. With large and small performing ensembles – wind, jazz, choral, orchestral, and chamber – as well as fully staged opera productions, the D’Angelo Department of Music prepares today’s students for tomorrow’s careers in performance, teaching, and the health care field,  and for graduate studies.
