    I. INTRODUCTION The UNC Charlotte Department of Music provides a comprehensive education that produces artists, scho-lars, and educators who embody musical excellence and professional integrity. The curriculum stresses faculty-mentored individual studies in music while also emphasizing the benefits offered by a major re-search university. The city of Charlotte provides a vibrant cultural community that gives students regular opportunities to experience, and even participate in, performances by resident professional ensembles such as the Char-lotte Symphony Orchestra and Opera Carolina. The Department of Music itself hosts over 50 events every year, ranging from student concerts to lectures, masterclasses, and recitals by faculty members and other internationally recognized artists. Located in a state-of-the-art teaching and performance facility, the department offers music majors and minors intensive professional programs in all wind, string, and percussion instruments, in addition to world-class studies in piano, voice, opera and musical theatre, choral music, and jazz.
