Get Involved: The Music Student’s Executive

The music students’ executive organizes fund-raising events for students, plans the Jazz Night, helps with preparation and backstage management at concerts, and works on other projects. The music executive is a great way to get involved with other music students, learn to work in a team, and get some experience in a leadership capacity. Involvement is voluntary and we encourage all interested students to come out and see what we’re about.
