Music, in all its forms, is woven deeply into the fabric of life on the ORU campus. If you are interested in studying any aspect of music — from composition to performance — and you desire a Christian education that focuses on development of the whole person, you won't find a better place to study than ORU. Here you can grow as a follower of Christ and a musician, merging your talents, passions and calling into a powerful purpose.


Scholarships are available to students who are excellent musicians, committed to delivering high-level performances and dedicated to their craft.

We are especially pleased to announce the addition of a new scholarship program, especially for instrumentalists and pianists who either plan to major in music, or plan to pursue another major but would like to participate in one of our ensembles.
