The Department of Music's Performance Programs invite interested students, faculty, staff, and community members to join its wide-ranging performing ensembles and programs.

Participation in Department of Music ensembles and activities is, in most cases, by audition. For the 2020-21 academic year, auditions may be completed via pre-recorded video or live over Zoom (instrumental auditions only). Your audition helps performance program directors get to know you and your musicianship, enabling them to match you with performance opportunities best suited to you.

All students who have not previously participated in the Performance Program (including incoming undergraduate and graduate students), as well as returning students interested in joining a new ensemble, are required to complete an audition for placement in the large instrumental ensembles, large choral ensembles, and the Chamber Music, Vocal Studies, and Piano Programs. Visit the 2020 Performance Program Auditions page for complete information.

Returning students who participated in the performance program in 2019-20 may register for the same ensemble(s) in 2020-21 without re-audition. Visit the 2020 Performance Program Registration page for more information.
