As a leader in performance and performing arts scholarship both locally and nationally, the University of Oregon School of Music and Dance is a mainstay of our wider community here in Oregon. The community is our classroom. Our verdant valley is full of off-campus arts organizations, concert venues, and opportunities to perform.

Students perform with prestigious off-campus ensembles and festivals, including contemporary dance ensembles and the Oregon Bach Festival. Our renowned faculty members actively perform and present research locally, nationally, and internationally, giving students a first-hand look into the lives of artists and scholars.
