The music department of Dordt College works to promote the study and performance of music as a significant and rich aspect of God’s world, to reveal the creational structure of music and its development throughout human history, to engage Dordt students and also constituents and the local community in active participation in music, to prepare and inspire competent and discerning musicians eager for a life of service in music, and to be a resource and support system for church musicians and music educators
