Harmony, Rhythm, Melody, Style - Make Music at KUA
Singing a capella, playing in classical, jazz, or rock ensembles, creating digital tracks, KUA students have many opportunities to express themselves musically. Students make music in formal and informal ensembles, record and create their own digital media, and study privately with professional instructors.
Unique to KUA, students do not have to choose between academics, athletics, and the arts; our ensembles meet after the academic day and are open to all. Whether a novice or experienced musician, several annual Music Department concerts provide students with opportunities to perform.

The Upper Valley also provides access to an array of musical events and concerts. Students can experience world-class performances at the nearby Hopkins Center at Dartmouth College, Northern Stage, and other concerts and music festivals in the area.
