Music Ensemble Tours

Calvin College music ensembles tour to connect with communities, prospective students and alumni, and to strengthen relationships among ensemble students as they offer their music in praise to God.

Solo & Ensemble Day

Are you preparing a piece for Solo and Ensemble festival this February? The Department of Music at Calvin College would like to help you get ready for this performance! On Saturday, January 16, 2016, we will be hosting a special day devoted just to solos and ensembles.

Knollcrest Music Camp

For over 40 years, Calvin College has welcomed students from west Michigan (and beyond) to engage in a wonderful week of music-making and learning through Knollcrest Music Camp.

Might You Be a Composer

If you are curious to find out more about what it means to be write music – what sort of things you need to learn, what sorts of gifts you need to already have, and what sorts of opportunities there are for composers – why not come explore such things at a workshop at Calvin College?

High School Honor Band Festival

High School Honor Band Festival is an opportunity for students to interact, learn from and perform with members of the Calvin College Wind Ensemble under the direction of guest conductor Carolyn Barber.


If you are an incoming student (first-year or transfer student) and are interested in performing with one of Calvin's eight music ensembles, you will want to make sure to register for a music audition during your PASSPORT orientation session.
