Good show!  I'm not familiar with the current state of affairs, but over the years they have had an excellent music program, and I don't expect it has changed much.  Not just performing, either -- teaching, theory, history, composing, the lot.  All good.

Welcome to the state.  It is beautiful all four seasons here.  It is particularly scenic from Bloomington south to the National Forest.  
Nearly all the professional musicians around here went to IU. (Clark County, IN)  Some quite talented musicians are in the group.  They have merged meetings of  the alumus group of the organ school with the local organ guild, so a number of members have performed free concerts.  I enjoy these, and wish the piano guild had a similar program.
The school is particularly good at early music.

Yeah, the campus is very nice, but also very confusing xD I'm a big fan of opera so I'm really excited to see what's happening there.
