It was raised to the level of Department of Vocal Music in the Music College and has since its inception, produced many musicians and educators.
  To educate creative and studious musicians, the Department of Vocal Music instructs a small group ensemble, chorus, and opera performances on the basis of music theory and practical technique courses. An essential element in the training involves stage performance experiences,.
