The Music Center at Ferris State University

Music performance opportunities at Ferris State University are designed to supplement and enrich the lives of students by assisting them in making the transition from the high school musical setting to the world of adult amateur musical ensembles. FSU students can continue to develop their musical skills and be prepared for a rewarding musical "life after college" by participating in Ferris musical ensembles that include both university students and members of the community - the format of the majority of community ensembles throughout the country. In this way, we aspire to inspire all FSU students to continue to enrich their lives and the lives of others as active performers of music - for life!
