Music at Wesleyan
“Music washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life"
As a liberal arts college, North Carolina Wesleyan College recognizes the essential role of music in a broad-based liberal arts curriculum. In fact, the first faculty member the College hired upon opening in 1960 was Dr. William Sasser, Professor of Music and Choral Director.
Today, the music department offers a combination of academic classes, performing ensembles and applied lessons that allow students to explore their musical interests and to broaden the scope of their liberal arts education.
