Music

Administrative Coordinator: Jessica Sweeney

Lewis & Clark’s Department of Music provides an intellectually, artistically, and creatively rigorous program with a breadth and depth of opportunities for students to explore music within the context of their liberal arts education. Music majors receive a comprehensive musical education through studying a core program of music theory, music history, and performance. They then choose an area of specialization that culminates in a capstone senior project. The music major curriculum is designed to prepare students for further musical study, careers in music, and global citizenry.

Our faculty of active performers, composers, music historians, and world-music scholars tailor their teaching to the needs of music majors and nonmajors, striving to establish music as a perpetually enriching element in the lives of their students.

Performing Organizations

The Department of Music provides performing opportunities for students at all levels of accomplishment and interest. These include the African Marimba Ensembles, Cappella Nova (a mixed choral ensemble), Community Chorale, Gamelan Ensembles, Guitar Ensemble, Chamber Music Ensembles, Jazz Combos, Opera/Musical Theatre, Orchestra, Percussion Ensemble, West African Rhythms, Wind Symphony, and Women's Chorus.

Resources for Nonmajors

All performing groups welcome participation by nonmajors, and all studio instruction is open to beginning as well as advanced students. The following courses are appropriate for students with little or no previous knowledge of music.

Facilities

The musical life of Lewis & Clark is based around Evans Music Center. Rehearsal rooms, 22 practice rooms, faculty offices and teaching studios, classrooms, and the administrative offices of the Department of Music are located there. The 400-seat Evans Auditorium is well known in the Portland area for its superior acoustics. Agnes Flanagan Chapel is also used for major concerts and recently underwent a renovation that enhanced its already vibrant sound. Fir Acres Theatre provides excellent facilities for production of operas, musicals, and other types of theatre.

The Department of Music uses a collection of more than 4,000 recordings, compact discs, and cassettes housed in Aubrey R. Watzek Library, as well as digital subscriptions providing access to hundreds of thousands of additional recordings. A fully equipped listening center and electronic and computer music studio with video-editing capabilities is available for student use. Evans Music Center also contains a Yamaha electronic keyboard laboratory and a composition computer suite.

The Music Center houses two harpsichords, a baroque organ, and 43 pianos, including one seven-foot and two nine-foot Steinway concert grands. The Agnes Flanagan Chapel contains an 85-rank Casavant organ appropriate for performance of all styles and periods. It is one of the finest organs in the Pacific Northwest. Two other pipe organs are also available on campus.

The Major Program

A core curriculum is common for the first two years, with students pursuing a more focused course of study in the junior and senior years. For the senior capstone experience, all students complete a senior project in one of three formats: recital performance, composition, and/or music research. Declaring a music major by the sophomore year is strongly advised.

All majors and prospective majors are reviewed by the music faculty at the end of the fall semester of the sophomore year. Most students should be near the completion of core requirements at this time. Transfer students and those who decide to declare a music major after the sophomore year must consult the department chair.

The sophomore review involves a short performance in the student’s primary area of studio instruction, or work samples in the primary area of interest (for students working in composition, musicology, or ethnomusicology), as well as an interview about intended areas of study in the junior and senior years.

A satisfactory departmental review results in faculty approval of upper-division status as a music major and is a prerequisite for MUS 490 Senior Project. Enrollment in MUS 490 requires completion of at least one semester of 300-level study in the chosen area of study. Further advising for a student’s senior project is done individually to match students’ aims with departmental and national standards. The senior project requires work beyond the core major requirements. Majors are required to complete the piano proficiency sequence before enrolling in MUS 490.
