Ensemble Auditions

  • Ensemble auditions take place during the first week of classes each semester or academic year.
  • Some ensembles require students to audition separately for entry. Others require the student to register for the class before the beginning of the academic term.
  • Check with the individual ensemble director for membership information and requirements.
