Conservatory of Music
In Their Own Words
When I began my college search, I already knew about Wheaton because my dad was an alumnus. After looking into several other institutions, I chose Wheaton and I’m so glad I did. My life was impacted academically, spiritually and personally by the students, professors and staff members. You may have heard the phrase “learning outside the classroom,” describing the Wheaton experience. It’s really true! Those experiences enrich the academic experience in countless ways. For me, those experiences included singing with the Concert Choir, going on tours and retreats, and serving on the Orientation Committee. I still enjoy being involved with Wheaton’s campus life. A few years ago I was asked to be a judge at the annual Talent Show, and most recently, a favorite experience was playing a cameo role in the 2013 Opera Music Theater production Pirates of Penzance . The music ensemble experience, which is open to the entire campus, is more than just making music, it's about making connections - to friends who share your passion, professors committed to mentorship, and a timeless repertoire of new music and masterworks. Those friendships and experiences will continue with you long after you leave Wheaton. Check it out for yourself on WETN.org. I look forward to getting to know you through the admissions and audition process here in the Conservatory of Music!
