The Music Department is housed in the Warde Academic Center and includes a rehearsal/performance space, a computer laboratory, an electronic piano laboratory, classrooms, teaching studios, practice rooms and a music computer/listening center.
McGuire Hall and the Music Performance Space serve as the primary performance halls for music concerts and recitals. University music ensembles also utilize other area facilities, which offer a wide variety of acoustical and performance space for occasional off-campus performances. Recent venues have included the McDonough Chapel (on campus), Mercy Chapel at Mercy Circle, St. Raymond Nonnatus in Joliet and Trinity Christian College in Palos Heights.
Music students and SXU faculty have the opportunity to hear their peers, as well as SXU faculty and invited guests on programs presented each academic year.
