Institutional Information:
The Ohio State University has demonstrated a commitment to the arts through the creation of a new Arts District that links the historic Oval to bustling High Street. The Arts District includes the new Timashev Family Music Building, which opened in Autumn 2022, as well as a new adjacent facility for the Department of Theatre, Film, and Media Arts. By bringing the various Arts units into an attractive, coherent, and accessible space, the Arts District will facilitate interdisciplinary creative and scholarly work, curricular innovation, and community engagement.

The School of Music is part of the College of Arts and Sciences, the academic heart of the university. The College includes 38 departments, 20+ world-class research centers and more than 2,000 faculty and staff members. The University has recently undertaken a revision of its General Education requirements, which aim to develop students’ capacities as engaged, resilient, and adaptable citizens and leaders, and the School of Music has proposed several new or revised courses to support this effort.

The School of Music is located on Ohio State University’s main campus in Columbus, the capital city of Ohio. Columbus is the Midwest’s fastest-growing city and the nation’s 14th largest city. Columbus offers a diverse array of welcoming neighborhoods and a vibrant arts and culture scene, including myriad professional string organizations such as the Columbus Symphony, ProMusica, Chamber Music Columbus, VIVO Music Festival, the String Teacher Workshop at Ohio State, UCelli: The Columbus Cello Quartet, Urban Strings Columbus, Columbus Cultural Orchestra, and Chamber Music Connection. String music education opportunities are likewise robust in Central Ohio, with string programs in all school districts, five youth orchestras, and three community orchestras. Additional information about all that the Columbus area has to offer is available at
