Drury's music department is an integral part of the university's liberal arts tradition. More than 400 Drury students take music classes, perform in music ensembles or take individual music lessons every semester. Graduates have a 93% placement rate immediately upon graduation - either in a job that requires a bachelor's degree or being accepted into graduate school.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, there will be no in-person audience for this year's Christmas Vespers service. Vespers will be available via a streamed broadcast accessible through the Drury website later in December. Check back here for more information as it becomes available.
Marching and Athletic Band
Drury will launch its marching and athletic band program in Fall 2020. Membership is open to both music and non-music majors.
The group is made up of students who love music and are excited to play their instrument, build friendships and make memories. The high energy of the drumline and horns along with the visual artistry of the color guard will bring an exciting environment to every corner of campus.
Drury University is an accredited institutional member of the National Association of Schools of Music (NASM). Additionally, the music therapy program is accredited by the American Music Therapy Association (AMTA), and the music education program is accredited by the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) and the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE).
