Ensembles are open to majors of all disciplines. Ensembles count as one unit of credit. Most, but not all, require auditions.
The Music Department regards continuous experience in active music-making to be an essential part of college music study.
To provide this experience, the department offers a wide range of ensembles both vocal and instrumental.
- All music majors (performance, jazz studies, liberal arts, and music education) must declare a major performance medium (instrument or voice) upon entering their program of study.
- Every music major is required to be in one major performing ensemble during each semester of residence in which they play their declared performance medium (instru- ment or voice). Students may be invited to play in additional major ensembles.
- Students may substitute a minor ensemble for a major ensemble only with the approval of their adviser and the department chair.
