Your academics and your love of music can continue in harmony at Austin College.
You’ve spent years in lessons, rehearsals, concerts, and contests. You’ve poured your heart into your music, so don’t leave it behind as you consider your college choices.

Every quality ensemble, from our fantastic choirs to our exciting bands to our amazing orchestras, is open to every AC student who has the ability to pass an audition.
You have choices for where you study music. Here’s why you should be at Austin College.
