Ensemble Auditions 2020-2021


Special Notice

President Stanley’s letter of Tuesday, August 18, announcing that all undergraduate instruction will be moved to a virtual modality, has changed our ensemble offerings for the coming semester.

All undergraduates will have a virtual alternative ensemble experience, but all undergraduate music majors with an ensemble requirement are still required to submit an audition video. See below for details. Scholarships remain unchanged.

There will likely be a chamber ensemble of graduate wind players that will rehearse during the Wind Symphony rehearsal block. Those graduate students who are interested in that ensemble should submit an audition video. See below for details.   

There will likely be a chamber orchestra of graduate string players that will rehearse during the Symphony Orchestra rehearsal block. Those graduate students who are interested in that ensemble should submit an audition video. See below for details. 

Those interested in Concert Orchestra should sign up for an audition. See below for details. 

Graduate jazz ensembles will likely be various small combos. Graduate students should submit an audition video. See below for details.   

Instrumentalists who have an ensemble requirement tied to a GA or scholarship and who do not wish to participate in an in-person ensemble should not audition and will not participate in the alternative online course. There will be no adjustment to your GA or scholarship.

Students who are eligible to overide ensemble auditions can submit the google form linked here. (note you must be logged in as a student)
