Faculty members in the School of Music are artist-teachers who have significant teaching and professional playing experience. Each full time string and orchestra faculty member is a nationally recognized musician in their own right and frequently appear as guest artists, guest conductors and clinicians throughout Kansas and the United States. Their successful careers span all facets of the professional world.
Many members of the string faculty are principals of the Wichita Symphony Orchestra, as well as members of faculty ensembles and other ensembles of national repute. The Fairmount String Quartet, in residence at WSU, presents two season concerts on the campus each year. In addition, they frequently present concerts and clinics at other universities and communities throughout the nation. The string faculty at Wichita State are committed to each individual student and are interested in personal music development.
