"LCC's vocal program gave me the opportunity to build up from a very limited musical background; if I had been at another institution, I am not sure I would have been granted the grace and support to learn from an introductory level at another higher learning institution. I credit my going on to pursue a performance degree to LCC's music faculty instilling in me a confidence in my musicianship and potential."

- Andrew Gomes

"Attending LCC was one of the best decisions I ever made! All of the professors are wonderful and give a very personalized experience. The vocal program especially enabled me to go on and earn my Bachelor of Music at a 4-year university."

- Rosie Graff

“My time in the LCC Music Program was amazing! Incredible faculty, impressive facilities and lifelong friends I made in the multiple ensembles. LCC provided me with a musical and educational background that will serve me well the rest of my life!”

- David Placido
