Snow College’s music department has received national recognition. According to Dr. Michael Huff, “The school of music at Snow College offers the most innovative and relevant course of music study to the 21st century and that is in contrast to many of our peer institutions around the state and around the country.”
The program draws people to Snow nationwide to study music. “The Horne School of Music is proud to offer the first 4-year degree in the history of Snow College: a Bachelor of Music degree with an emphasis in Commercial Music. This new degree is unique in the State of Utah due to its emphasis on music industry and entrepreneurship . . . The Eccles Center for the Performing Arts serves as the home for the School of Music and is one of the finest performing arts facilities in the state of Utah” (snow.edu). While the music department is no longer affiliated with Juilliard, the teachers of both schools are still in touch and a letter of recommendation from one of Snow’s music teachers could open doors that most other schools can’t.
Whitnee Hatch enjoys attending the department’s concerts and says, “They bring me happiness, I have only ever missed two concerts this year. It is so good to watch live music all the time, that’s why I come.”
Snow will host many upcoming concerts. The cost varies from free to $3 tickets for students with an activity card. There are concerts almost everyday.
