    Student Ensembles

    For developing musicians, the opportunity to perform as part of an ensemble is integral to improving musicianship and professionalism. Performing in ensembles will push you beyond your normal comfort zone by widening your musical styles and knowledge while also making you more conscious of areas for improvement. In order to provide our students a well-rounded musical education as well as ample performance opportunities, we offer a wide-variety of ensembles including guitar, opera, jazz/combo, percussion, wind, university singers and university sinfonia.
