Ensemble Participation

Participation in music ensembles is open to all students university-wide regardless of major. Music majors and other students enrolled in private study are required to participate in an approved ensemble.

Participation in many School of Music ensembles can fulfill the University Arts and Humanities Breadth Area elective, and some may be taken for zero credit. For details, visit the online course catalogue.

In order to gain admission into the large instrumental ensembles, students must pass an audition. Students who do not audition or do not perform a passing audition will not be admitted to the ensembles.
