University ends music programs

March 13, 2004|From Chicago Tribune

Northwestern University has ended the school's storied organ and church music degree programs, citing the lack of enrollment and need to focus music department resources elsewhere.

The organ program at Northwestern dates to the 1890s, and over the decades its graduates have held major music posts at churches and academic departments across the country.

But despite the offer of scholarships, school officials say, there have been a total of eight undergraduates in the last eight years enrolling in the organ music program, and only one in the last three years.

Instruction in organ will continue to be offered on a non-degree basis.
