  • Welcome to the Department of Music at Ole Miss, Mississippi’s flagship university. Our mission is to prepare students for professional careers by offering undergraduate and graduate degrees in music education, performance and choral conducting. Students entering our programs become part of a vibrant community led by a distinguished and enthusiastic faculty, with 25 full-time and 12 adjunct members, dedicated to teaching, research and performance. Thus, our students – more than 170 majors – receive the rigorous individual attention necessary to develop their full potential. As a department within the College of Liberal Arts, we are also committed to offering stimulating courses and performance opportunities for nonmajors.

    The Patrons of Music is proud to invite you to its Special Event!

    Prior to the Fall Wind Ensemble Concert on November 19th, the Department is hosting an open house to promote the revitalization of the Patrons organization and to show off the newly renovated west wing. Please join us between 6:30 and 7:30pm for light refreshments, a tour of the new facility, and great conversation.
