Student Music Organizations
Our student music organizations are active and involved!
The life of a student musician involves academics and music-making, of course, but it is also social, professional, inspirational, service-oriented and often just plain fun! Student music organizations have a long tradition at Hastings College, playing an important role at the heart of the life of our music community.
