The CSUSB Music Department offers an accredited education in a wide variety of fields such as performance, composition, music technology, commercial music, musical theater, music education, and music history.  The department hosts several musical events throughout the year.  Our quarterly concert selection depends on the students and faculty and typically includes jazz, string orchestra, symphonic band and choir. The Music Department also hosts several guest artists from around the world throughout the year.  The annual Opera Theatre presentation is one of Cal States premier events.

We welcome everyone to attend any of our events in order to reap the benefits of the education that our students receive.  Our performances are for our surrounding community to enjoy and for our students to gain performance experience.
