VanderCook is their future…music education is their passion.
Sending a student to college is a major life event for families as well as students. At VanderCook, we are committed to helping you and your student make the most of their college experience by providing numerous opportunities for them to get involved in VanderCook traditions and campus activities.
You can share in their experience, meet more of the VanderCook family, and help support the college, too. Throughout the year, we host events you can participate in a number of ways.
Each September, the college hosts a concert featuring each of our major ensembles. This 2012 Prism Concert will be held on Saturday, September 8 at 7:00 pm and will include a pre-concert reception on campus. This is not only a wonderful musical event, but also a great social event. You’ll be able to meet faculty and staff, students, other families, and spend some time enjoying autumn in Chicago.

Each spring, the college hosts a benefit concert to support the Great Teachers Scholarship Fund.
