Musician Posture Screenings

Within the past decade the number — and sometimes seriousness — of performance injuries has grown. This is an issue all musicians at all levels of accomplishment need to take seriously. 

The School of Physical Therapy will provide posture screenings for musicians, to be held at the Onsite PT Clinic in Weyerhaeuser Hall.

Instrumental musicians - please bring your instruments to the screening.


Concerto-Aria Competition

The University of Puget Sound Concerto-Aria Competition has been an honored tradition in the School of Music since 1981. 

Students participate each fall in this highly competitive program that highlights their work as musical soloists. Winners are offered opportunities to perform as soloists with the School of Music’s Symphony Orchestra or Wind Ensemble.  Prior years' winners have also gone on to win regional and national music competitions; and perform with professional ensembles and opera companies.
