About the Department

The University of Arkansas, Department of Music is housed in the George and Boyce Billingsley Music Building and is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Music. Home to over 300 music students and thirty eight faculty members, we offer a variety of degree programs at the baccalaureate and graduate levels.

With the recent completion of the 600-seat Faulkner Performing Arts Center, the music department added a world class performance venue dedicated solely to music. Our current recital hall, Stella Boyle Smith Concert Hall, is located in the Fine Arts building, adjacent to the Music Building. The 200-seat Concert Hall offers an intimate setting for chamber and solo recitals and is the host for more than 300 concerts annually.
