Music on The Hill

My friends and I are not in the Holy Cross band. In fact, none of us are studying music at the College. However, I can speak to the fact that music is a popular interest on campus, both officially and recreationally.

When you attend a basketball game, for instance, you will hear the pep band playing loudly across from the high-energy student’s section. On another occasion, you can attend a concert put on by your friends and students. Many of these students are in fact music majors, minors or double majors.

If you are not planning on a major in music or being a member of the Holy Cross band, there are many opportunities to explore a musical hobby. Between the frequent “10 spot” concerts held in the student center, the much anticipated battle of the bands and the handful of popular a cappella groups, there are no barriers to students sharing their musical talents with their peers at Holy Cross

My friends and I and many other non music majors on campus are given access to a band room in which we can rehearse.  Holy Cross also offers music and vocal lessons on campus if you are looking to make progress during your time on campus.  In short, whether you’re an established musician or someone who has just begun to learn, you will find that music is very much a part of the liberal arts curriculum here at Holy Cross.
