Students performing from the studio of Professor Tony Deaton include Sara Baker, soprano; Kaylee Gallagher, mezzo-soprano, and Aaron Murphy, bass-baritone; from the studio of Professor Virginia Horton will be Chelsea Davidson, mezzo-soprano; from the studio of Dr. Andrea Dismukes will be Jessie Johnson, mezzo-soprano; from the studio of Dr. Brenda Moye will be Curtis Nichols, alto saxophone; from the studio of Professor Debbie Sheeks will be Maddie Taylor, mezzo-soprano; from the studio of Professor Gordon James will be Erica Tipton, horn; from the studio of Dr. Andy Harnsberger will be Vinny Tunkel, marimba; and, from the studio of Professor Ning An, will be Xin Yu Wang, piano, and Wan-Lin Yu, piano. 

Graduate performers include Marcelo Jimenez, viola, from the studio of Professor Xiaoqing Yu, Lamprini Lindeman, mezzo-soprano, and Vera Voznyuk, soprano, both from the studio of Dr. Andrea Dismukes.
