Welcome

We are extremely excited that you are considering studying the art and science of music!

The Indiana Wesleyan University Division of Music seeks to develop students in an awareness of accountability to God and the importance of a personal commitment to Christ. It is the faculty's strong desire that this commitment become apparent in the student's attitude toward his or her music. We believe it is vital to recognize that all gifts and talents are given by God, to be cultivated to their highest potential for his glory and service.

The Division of Music recently received reaccreditation with the National Association of Schools of Music (NASM). This is a testimony to the strength of our programs and the level of respect our division enjoys among other colleges and universities.

We invite you to explore our five different curriculum tracks. We encourage you to visit us on Facebook and to "like" us! Please feel free to contact us so that we may send additional information about the exciting opportunities available to you at IWU.

IWU University Singers Celebrate the Life and Works of Charles Price Jones; IWU Chapel Auditorium, November 11, 2014, 7:30 P.M.

Cudjoe pic smallest

Bishop Dale Cudjoe (pictured above) headlines this interactive evening featuring the music and life of Charles Price Jones. C.P. Jones was a dynamic African-American Holiness preacher who ministered in a time of great social and racial tension in Alabama and in Jackson, Mississippi. His story emerges from his powerful proclamation of the message of entire sanctification and through the 1000 hymns he wrote. His positive response in faith to the surrounding turmoil still speak to us today though his music.

The University Singers will perform original and new arrangements of his most popular songs, including “Deeper, Deeper in the Love of Jesus,” “Where Shall I Be?” and “Come Unto Me.”

Special guest, Dr. Dale Cudjoe, is a presiding Bishop in the Church of Christ (Holiness), having been elected in 2010 and consecrated in 2011 and assigned over the Northern Diocese of COCHUSA (the states in the diocese are Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan and Ohio). He has also been the senior pastor at Christ Temple (COCHUSA) in Gary, Indiana since 1989.

Dr. Cudjoe will perform with the Singers and will share insights into the life, ministry and legacy of C.P. Jones. The University Singers are under the leadership of Dr. Michael Dennis.
