THE SCHOOL OF MUSIC AT PORTLAND STATE UNIVERSITY is dedicated to giving our students the experience they need to attain their musical aspirations.  No other institution in the state offers so many performing opportunities to young musicians.

Portland State Music students are fortunate to participate in our internationally-recognized STUDENT ENSEMBLES.  Please visit our PORTFOLIO page to view recorded past performances and interviews.  Please visit our RECENT & UPCOMING page for listings of future performances.

With the Portland Center for the Performing Arts (PCPA) and other performance venues nearby, students enjoy many opportunities to hear the finest musicians in the world. Students gain practical performance experience by participating with many professional and pre-professional groups including Portland Opera, Portland Symphonic Choir, Oregon Symphony Orchestra, Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, Musical Theater Company, and the Portland Youth Philharmonic.
