VocalOur Program Concentrations
We are united in our commitment to you, the student, as we nurture and train the whole singer, not just the voice
The Vocal Program at the University of New Mexico is one of the most outstanding and dynamic voice programs in the Southwestern United States. We are equally committed to our singers, undergraduate, graduate, music education majors and performance majors alike. Our students, who are frequently recognized for their excellence at local, regional, and national competitions, regularly continue their education at some of the country’s top-ranking music schools and conservatories. Our Alumni have appeared in performances around the world as well as serve on music faculties throughout the country.
The UNM voice faculty is committed to producing outstanding singers and training capable voice teachers. Our faculty teaches diction, pedagogy, opera and vocal repertory, and provides knowledge and insight to the interpretation of vocal music from all time periods.
“UNM prepared me with the foundation of knowledge and skills I needed to advance as a musician while deepening my appreciation for the wonderful music being made in my home state.”Dr. Sharon O'Connell
