Brock University Music Department, part of the Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine and Performing Arts, is a major educational and cultural presence in the Niagara Region. We offer BMus and BA degrees in Music, with possible concentrations in Music Education, Music History and Theory, and Music Performance. We pride ourselves on small, welcoming classes held in the new, state-of-the-art Walker School building situated in downtown St. Catharines. We present numerous concerts every year from September to April; these are staged in the acoustically excellent Cairns Recital Hall and Partridge Hall at the FirstOntario Performing Arts Centre, adjacent to our school. Our regular concerts include: the Encore! Series, featuring national- and international-calibre guest artists; our Viva Voce Choral Series; and our RBC Tuesday@Noon series. In addition, our Wind Ensemble and String Orchestra give concerts at the end of each term, the exciting and innovative Guitar Extravaganza takes place each fall, and student solo recitals are held in March and April.
