Music Calendar of Events | Southwestern Illinois College

Enriching Our Community Through Musical Performances

We believe that bringing the highest quality musical performances to our campus and community is one of our most important missions.  Recent years have seen visits by Chamber Project STL, Saxophonist Jeff Coffin, The Trombones of the St. Louis Symphony, The 442s, The Perseid String Quartet, The Linjadi Trio, tuba virtuoso Patrick Sheridan, as well as performances by SWIC Faculty members, students, and local high school ensembles.

The SWIC Music Department is committed to being leaders in our community, and we encourage you to attend our events and discover the joys that only live music can provide!
