Piano. Violin. Trumpet. Cello. Clarinet.

Students who graduate high school playing these or other instruments don't have to stop when they come to college.

Widener's music program is unique in that students pursuing advanced study with their instrument do so while majoring in another field or as part of the Fine Arts major. Both academic and performance-based courses are offered each semester, and students can participate in one of several ensemble groups. Students have access to the Linsky Recording Studio, a 24-track studio that allows musicians to review and critique their progress via tape playback.

Widener also has a resident Chorale and Gospel Choir, the latter of which performs both on campus and at regional events.
