As the fall semester winds down at Kenyon, musical activity crescendos. Many of the College's instrumental ensembles and singing groups perform in November and December, treating campus audiences to works in an impressive range of genres. Kenyon students concertize in formal groups and jam in their own bands. The Music Department, meanwhile, fills the academic year with concerts by visiting virtuosos as well as student and faculty recitals, all supplementing a rich program of courses in music history and theory along with private lessons
December is one of Kenyon's most musical months. See the schedule of upcoming concerts.
Winds, strings, percussion, and on and on. No matter what your instrument, Kenyon has an ensemble for you. Here's the list.

Do you sing? Five a cappella groups, a gospel choir, and other ensembles keep student singers in tune.
