Our students enjoy access to an extensive music library, including printed & digital scores, CDs, LPs, books about music, and streaming audio. In addition we help train new music librarians through our work with the Coordinated Program in Music Librarianship – a joint degree between the School of Information Studies and the Peck School of the Arts Department of Music.
There are more than 20 student performing groups at UWM, including the Brass Choir, Collegium Musicum, Concert Chorale, Jazz Ensemble, Music From Almost Yesterday, Contemporary Music Ensemble, Percussion Ensemble, Symphony Band, Symphony Orchestra, University Band, University Choir, Wind Ensemble, UWM Opera, and numerous chamber groups.
