Northern Kentucky University created its School of the Arts in 2015. This is a small, undergraduate-only program, so students have many opportunities without the competition of a large studio or high level graduate students. There are many opportunities for performance, and the orchestra recently did a tour of Ireland. Feel free to contact Joseph Rebman, Professor of Harp. Rebmanj1@nku.edu.
