About The Don Wright Faculty of Music

The Don Wright Faculty of Music offers our students an extraordinary music education at one of Canada's most prestigious and picturesque university campuses. Nationally recognized scholars, composers, administrators, teachers and performers - leaders in Canadian music - engage students in a learning environment equaled by very few institutions. The Faculty offers a broad range or programs (undergraduate, graduate, diploma and certificate), a challenging learning experience, a collegial atmosphere, and outstanding facilities, including one of North America's top music libraries.

With more than 500 undergraduate students, 110 graduate students and more than 100 teachers, the Faculty is small enough to foster the development of close-working relationships with professors and colleagues, yet large enough to support a full symphony orchestra, fully staged opera and musical theatre productions, prize-winning choirs and a top-notch wind band program. We produce more than 300 concerts each year, most of which are free and open to the public.
