The Office of Music Activities promotes, maintains, and supervises the efforts of student performing groups on the Villanova campus. These groups include bands, choirs, acapella, orchestra, dance groups, theater, musical theater and band auxiliary (half time dances & twirlers).
The Office of Music Activities provides Villanova students with unique opportunities to perform, travel, and share their talents and interests.
