Message from the Chair  kris

Kris Tjornehoj

UWRF Music Department is exciting and transforming itself with new ideas, offerings, and majors.  We are adding more great faculty, online classes, and clinics throughout the year.  Watch for music events, concerts, and opportunities for you to participate and enrich your life.   

Music Education majors have a 100% placement record over the past 5 years.   You too can join our program and finish that degree in a timely manner.   Our location to the Twin Cities (Minneapolis/St.Paul) provides amazing opportunities for collaboration with inner city schools, suburban scenes, and rural placements.  

Performance opportunities abound through the UWRF Music Department for majors, non-majors, and adults.   We serve the greater region with quality events and ensembles.   Like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter, call us, and be sure to check the calendar for concerts and events.  Many faculty host websites so staff informed and come see us soon.  Our faculty are active on campus and throughout the world.  Don't miss out.
