Music at CF
CF Vocal Music
Training in Vocal Music at CF gives students a solid foundation in various techniques including classical, Broadway and other popular styles. Under the direction of Assistant Professor John Guarente, students perform extensively in solo recitals and showcases, ensemble concerts and musical theater shows. Musical Theater students produce two Broadway shows each year and benefit from frequent campus visits by guest artists.
CF Instrumental Music
Each year, hundreds of students participate in musical ensembles, including wind symphony, woodwind ensemble, flute choir, string ensemble, guitar ensemble and brass ensemble. The faculty and students are always exploring new repertoire and styles of music literature. Associate Professor John Ash and Professor Sarah Satterfield, along with a staff of talented adjunct instructors, maintain the instrumental program with a focus on gaining performing experience.
The CF Jazz Band is a popular part of the CF Music Department. These student ensembles strive for a professional sound and performance experience, mastering the basics of jazz literature and appearing at a variety of special events throughout the year.
