• Attention All Musicians!

    Do you enjoy singing in a choir? Are you thinking about a music major? Was band or orchestra one of your favorite things about high school? Do you want to take private lessons? Hamline wants your talents and musical passion!

    During Piper Passages in the fall, you will have the opportunity to showcase your talents for the music faculty so they can place you in the appropriate ensemble or with a specific faculty for private lessons. Below you will find the times and locations for these placements. Also, please note what you will need to prepare.
