WELCOME to the Indiana State University School of Music
From Ted. J. Piechocinski, JD, Interim Director of the School of Music:
It’s hard to believe that the Fall 2022 semester is halfway gone. It has been an extremely busy and productive period for everyone in the School of Music. Our major ensembles have already performed at least once and the reception has been terrific.
