Music at ConverseExploring new opportunities for audience engagement and blazing new trails in the arts is a central focus of the Petrie School of Music.

Contemporary Music (Media Applications) aims to enhance its performance resources by investing in portable instruments and equipment, allowing Converse to offer its students relevant experience outside the classroom. A key component of the degree is the students’ experience in Creative Music Ensemble: essentially, students form bands, set their rehearsal schedule, manage their budget, book gigs, record their music, and post performances to the internet. Your gift will help provide the equipment needed to allow students to perform in the community and gain valuable experiences that they then can apply to their future careers.

Converse College offices will be closed Thursday, December 19 through January 1. Offices will reopen January 2 at 8:30 am.
