Intimate musical experience minutes from downtown Indy

As a UIndy music student, you will have the chance to engage with first-rate faculty, experience performances in a world-class concert venue, and connect in a close-knit educational environment, all within minutes of downtown Indianapolis. The Christel DeHaan Fine Arts Center's performance hall provides an exquisite, Viennese-style space in which a special acoustic design produces thrilling sound. Close proximity to the downtown area and the Fountain Square district provides a vibrant setting for internship possibilities as well as culturally engaging opportunities for Indianapolis residents and University students alike.

First-rate faculty & personal attention

You'll receive individualized instruction from music faculty that features many prominent musicians and teachers of the greater Indianapolis area, including members of the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra and Indianapolis Chamber Orchestra. Through private lessons and ensemble opportunities, you'll be able to glean instruction from their real-world experience.

The Faculty Artist Concert Series, the most comprehensive recital series in the area, continues to feature compelling presentations of solo repertoire, dynamic readings of great chamber literature, provocative presentations of new works, exhilarating period instrument performances, and distinctive approaches to both classic and contemporary jazz.
