Small Ensembles


Update for the 2021–2022 Academic Year

Our ensembles are committed to providing meaningful and educational experiences. Rehearsals and performances will return to pre-COVID practices (with possible exceptions) and are subject to change as health and safety guidelines evolve throughout the academic year.

We are excited to make music together again!


There are diverse opportunities for small instrumental and vocal ensembles in the School of Music. Contact the appropriate faculty member to learn how to participate.

Note that not all ensembles are offered every semester. Check the Course Catalog and consult with your academic advisor.
