A NOTE from the Shenandoah Conservatory Dean

While it may not be possible at the present time for us to gather, create and share in the large groups to which we have become accustomed, know that Shenandoah Conservatory is drawing on all of its uniquely collaborative and creative energies to prepare our spaces and our teaching models to ensure students continue to receive the highest level of education — no matter the circumstances. While certain ways of doing things (audition days, for example) may continue to change as the year progresses, Shenandoah remains steadfast in its commitment to nurture not only the arts but also the incredible human spirit that makes the arts possible. 

Thanks for taking a look at us, 

Michael Stepniak, Ed.D. 
Dean and Professor of Music
