The highly acclaimed Music program is under the direction of Dr. William Rayfield III. (A.S., Southern Union State Community College; B.M.E. Birmingham Southern College; M.M. Columbus State University; Ed. D. University of Memphis).
For years, the Southern Union Sound - accompanied by the Southern Union Singers and Dancers - have performed before standing-room only audiences for their annual Christmas and Spring Shows.
Performers on the SU stage have gone on to perform at highly acclaimed venues. The winner of the "Nashville Star" 2004 competition attended SUSCC and was a member of the Southern Union Sound. Additionally, the choir has enjoyed multiple biennial Memorial Day weekend invitations to perform John Rutter's REQUIEM under the composer's baton in New York's famed Carnegie Hall.
Southern Union currently offers 38 music scholarships. Auditions for music scholarships are scheduled each year in early March at the Wadley Campus.
