The Office of Music Activities promotes, maintains, and supervises the efforts of student performing groups on the Villanova campus. These groups include bands, choirs, a cappella, 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.
