Ensemble Audition Information

Ensembles at the Sunderman Conservatory have open auditions, and general student participation is extremely high! In fact, all interested students are encouraged to perform in an ensemble. Indeed, if you are interested in pursuing music performance - even if you are not a music major - there is a group for you.

All students who are music majors are required to participate in their primary performing medium (instrument or voice) for credit in at least one major ensemble each semester of residence.

Music majors planning to graduate with the BA degree should register for MUS_ENS 330: Advanced Ensemble in their sixth (6th) semester of participation in the same major ensemble for a full course credit. NOTE: BS degree students may take MUS_ENS 330 as an elective credit in their sixth (6th) semester of participation in the same ensemble for a full course credit.

Music minors receiving Wagnild or Patrick awards have the same requirements as music majors. Others should follow the catalog requirements for the minor. Music minors should also note that in the fourth (4th) semester of their participation in a major ensemble (as defined above), they must register for MUS_ENS 230: Advanced Ensemble Performance to fulfill the ensemble requirement for the minor.
