An integral part of our music studies. Our ensembles cover all major genres and range in size from an 80-piece concert band to small chamber groups. Participation is required for students seeking a Bachelor of Music or Bachelor of Jazz Studies degree.
The B.Music program requires at least two ensembles each year for four years, and the B.Jazz program requires at least one ensemble each year for four years. All new and returning music students must audition for ensemble placement for their credit ensembles every year. Auditions take place late August/early September.
We welcome auditions by community members and students from other faculties who may wish to perform with one of our ensembles.
For the upcoming academic year, the Ensemble Directors are developing new experiences and educational opportunities through our on-line ensembles – whether it is music-making with students from different universities, working with mentors from around the world, or deep dives into repertoire and into examining the process of making music together – we are committed to providing music-making of the highest level for all of our students.
Ensemble audition and registration forms are now available on the Audition Information page.
