THE RECORDS OF THE MUSIC DEPARTMENT in the University Archives
Virginia Union University

October 1997

 

These records reflect the performances and activities of the Music Department at Virginia Union University. The department was started in 1967 and offered a Bachelor of Arts in Music Education. In 1985, two additional concentrations were added: Applied Music and Commercial Music. In 1993, these two concentrations were divided into Performance, Commercial Music/Jazz Studies, and Composition. The department also sponsors various performance groups such as Chapel Choir, Concert Band, Concert Choir, Jazz Ensembles, Marching Band, Opera Workshop, and the University Choir.

The Department Chairs have been as follows:

Dr. Odell Hobbs 1967-1991

Dr. W. Weldon Hill 1991-1992

Dr. John Ware 1992-

The bulk of the collection is performance programs for the various performance groups, especially the University Choir and the Concert Choir, and departmental correspondence. The correspondence is almost entirely that of Dr. Hobbs. The Administrative file contains the 1979-1980 Year End Report, a few department faculty meeting minutes, press releases and course outlines. The Miscellaneous file includes programs for opera and alumni concerts.
