Enrollment and Performance Opportunities

The Strings Program at the Frost School of Music is highly selective, ensuring small enrollment and rewarding performance opportunities.

There are approximately 65 undergraduate and graduate string musicians at the Frost School of Music, an ideal number to ensure a top-tier full orchestra, yet small enough to provide excellent interaction with faculty, guest artists and peers.

Once accepted academically to the University of Miami, and by musical audition to the Frost School of Music, string students may choose any major offered through the Frost School of Music.

Performance majors may earn a Bachelor of Music, Master of Music and a Doctor of Musical Arts, while others choose to earn a Bachelor of Arts or B.M. degrees ranging from Music Business to Music Therapy. 

String students audition and perform in the Frost Symphony Orchestra, as well as participate in chamber music performances and master classes at the highest levels.  String students also participate in a weekly Studio Class, String Forum, Chamber Music Forum and receive coaching from Frost faculty, musicians from The Cleveland Orchestra during their annual Miami residency, and from guest artists throughout the academic year.

Graduate students also have the opportunity to perform in the Frost Chamber Orchestra and the Henry Manicini Institute Orchestra, led by resident conductor and string faculty Scott Flavin.
