The mission of the Music Department at the University of the Incarnate Word is threefold: to develop skilled musicians by educating the minds, ears, and souls of our music students within the liberal arts tradition; to serve the general student population by enriching the CORE curriculum; and to enhance the musical offerings in the UIW and San Antonio communities.

Ensembles in the music department include: the UIW Cardinal Chorale (which has performed in Carnegie Hall), the Madrigals, the UIW Jazz Ensemble (which recently performed at the Montreux Jazz Festival), the Orchestra of the Incarnate Word, the UIW Cardinal Marching Band and the UIW Concert Band. There is also a weekly performance hour or seminar during which time students, faculty, and guests perform for each other.
