Many ethnomusicology students opt to pursue joint majors with compatible programs in the College—recent graduates have completed joint majors in anthropology, religion, sociology, American studies, and other areal studies. As performers, students have opportunities to participate in a wide range of world music ensembles, including the faculty-led Balinese Gamelan, Samba School, Bard Georgian Choir, and Eastern European Music & Leisure Club. Additionally, student and community-led groups engage diverse students in a range of musical activities, such as “Sacred Harp” singing, the Chinese music club, gospel choir, and much more.
