|The Musical Journeys Program is a division of the SUNY Fredonia School of Music. Founded in 2005, the mission is to provide quality musical experiences to students of all ages in Western New York. Fredonia's students and faculty work together to give a broad range of individual instrumental and vocal instruction as well as activities through summer music programs, the New Horizons Band of Western New York, the Chautauqua Children's Chorale and other ensembles.
The School of Music has a commitment to outreach and to expanding and deepening its involvement in the community. The concept of "musical experiences for all ages" is the backbone of the Musical Journeys Program and leads us to provide activities for children, pre-college teens, adults and seniors. Wherever you find yourself fitting into the program, we hope that you will take advantage of the opportunity. As the program grows and becomes further established, new components to the program will be added. We welcome your ideas, too, as we work toward these goals.
The School of Music at Fredonia is renowned for its achievements in performance and the quality of its curricula. The students in the School are competitively selected in a rigorous admission process, and only the best students in advanced stages of their degree programs will be authorized to teach in Musical Journeys. For you, we endeavor to provide experiences in the creative arts that will stimulate learning skills, enhance self-esteem, provide a sense of accomplishment and reward, and enrich an appreciation for the arts.
