Creating real world experiences

Ensembles are an essential component of our degree programs and provide professional-level laboratory experiences in music performance. Our student performers practice their craft under the guidance of skilled artist-conductors, experience monumental and diverse repertoire, share in musical community, and create powerful aesthetic experiences for everyone involved. With over 25 major and secondary ensembles, there’s a place for everyone to perform.  Students from all majors and backgrounds are invited to participate!

Major Ensembles

View pages for audition information and requirements. Please note that the ensemble audition process is separate from the music admission and scholarship audition.

Secondary Ensembles

We offer multiple opportunities to perform in jazz combos and chamber ensembles which range from large like-instrument choirs to trios. To perform in a secondary ensemble, please contact the Area Coordinator listed below who can assist you with placement options.
