Vocal and Instrumental

If you play an instrument or sing in an ensemble, you know that feeling of camaraderie and success through teamwork. Our objective at CCSJ is to make sure our students have opportunities to continue making and enjoying music throughout their college experience.

Our ensembles provide high-quality experiences in vocal and instrumental music, performing a wide repertoire of music in many different venues throughout the year.

New students who enroll full-time in and participate in one or more music programs may be eligible to receive the annual Creative Performance Scholarship. This scholarship is one of a kind and provides students a substantial financial award while pursuing any undergraduate major the college has to offer.
