Dear Dewberry School of Music Family,
We were thrilled to welcome new music students and welcome back our returning students at last week's Spring 2021 Convocation. We are looking forward to a wonderful spring semester with student and faculty performances, lectures, masterclasses, guest artists, and new commissioned works to share.
We are proud to announce that twelve Mason students were winners last weekend at the 2021 Virginia State NATS (National Association of Teachers of Singing) Virtual Vocal Competition. Kudos to our outstanding Vocal Studies Area! How thrilled we were to have our Mason Jazz Studies Faculty featured at the 2021 Jazz Education Network (JEN) National Conference on January 7th with the Shawn Purcell Group!
How grateful we are to our Mason Music faculty and alumni who serve in our military ensembles and to those who serve in the National Guard. Their intense dedication to music and service to our country is inspiring to all of us.
