    On behalf of the Music Department — Welcome!

    Our stellar faculty, exceptional one-on-one studio instruction, award-winning ensembles, modest-sized classes, and outstanding facilities are ready for you at Mississippi’s flagship institution.

    Our students perform in multiple ensembles, work on research projects, engage with the Lafayette-Oxford-University community, and develop close friendships that prepare them for successful careers. Our department is dedicated to each student’s educational journey and individual growth.

    We are proud to produce a wide range of musical events that engage and impact our community. I would be thrilled to answer any questions you may have about our program, the culture of our department and community, or life as a music major — feel free to get in touch.

    Stay connected to Ole Miss Music’s news and events by visiting our Event Calendar, and by receiving our e-newsletter.  To have our brief weekly e-newsletters delivered straight to your inbox, please click here.

    I truly believe music matters, and I look forward to seeing you at one of our upcoming events.

    – Nancy Maria Balach
