Music Ensembles

ChoirThe Department of Music's twelve faculty-directed ensembles are regularly scheduled 1-credit classes, open by audition to all students on the River Campus.

Those interested in participating in small chamber-music groups can meet with the Director of Orchestral Activities and register for the 1-credit course MUR 155 Chamber Ensembles. Click here for a full description of each ensemble.

There are student-directed groups abound on campus, as well. Several a cappella groups are informally supported by the music department, although participation in them does not earn collegiate credit. There are many more vocal and instrumental groups operating independently, some having been in existence for several years, others forming rather spontaneously from a number of students with a common interest.
