Find Your Connection Here

Across time and national boundaries, without regard to social class or political ideology, music connects us all by communicating directly to the heart and the emotions. As a student, you make these connections through opportunities to perform in solo recitals and ensemble concerts on campus and in performance travel throughout the U.S. and the world.

The Conservatory of Music, Piedmont's newest addition on the Demorest campus, will host the majority of the music program's performances. Piedmont is in an elite group as one of very few higher-ed institutions to be designated as "all-Steinway" schools after the selection of 27 brand new pianos.
