Music Faculty & Staff

Pomona College boasts eight full-time faculty members, all active performers, with a wide variety of specializations (including performance, composition, music history, music theory and ethnomusicology) and national and international visibility. In addition to performing, many have received a variety of awards, published articles and books, and recorded numerous CDs with various labels.

In addition to the full-time members of the Department of Music, the program also welcomes approximately 30 adjunct faculty, all of them also active performers throughout Southern California. These faculty regularly perform either as soloists or with a variety of acclaimed ensembles including the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, Los Angeles Opera, Long Beach and Pasadena Symphonies and others.

The Music Department staff is comprised of members who are experienced in their own fields.
