The Music Program offers students a Music major and also a Music minor.

College Choir | Marching Band | Rock Ensemble | Wind Ensemble

Student musicians may participate in group or individual applied lessons in voice, piano, guitar, or traditional band and orchestral instruments. Students may participate in the College Choir, Wind Ensemble, Pep Band and Pops Ensemble.

The Bethany College Music Society (Music Club) is a Student Government Association funded group that performs a variety of services on campus, when asked, and is dedicated to attending performing arts activities outside of the Bethany community. Many students choose to take academic courses in music to round out the slate of electives in their curriculum.

Prospective students who desire to major or minor in music at Bethany College must complete an audition before a faculty committee.

NOTE: Students not wishing to major or minor in music may audition for a music scholarship to sing or play in one of the Bethany College music ensembles. 

Auditions can be scheduled by appointment. Please contact Pandel Collaros (pcollaros@bethanywv.edu) for further information and to arrange an appointment. If you are traveling from a distance to visit Bethany College, efforts will be made to schedule you an audition while on campus. While an in person audition is ideal, a DVD may be submitted if time and/or distance makes a live audition impossible.  Please send materials to:

Please schedule your audition as soon as possible to receive the best possible scholarship opportunities. After your audition the music faculty will notify you if you are recommended for admission into an ensemble and/or for a scholarship.
