Auditions for ensembles are held during the first week of each semester. Students interested in participating in any of the ensembles should contact the director sometime during the first few days of the semester, or for returning students, the semester prior to participation.
The ensemble requirement was established by the faculty for several reasons. It provides professional training in an important area of a student's personal performance development. It provides opportunities for music students to hear great masterworks in live performance. It also provides listening experiences for other members of the CSB/SJU community.
Official Dress: The dress code for Wind, Orchestra, Men's Chorus, Women's Chorus, Chamber Choir and Brass Ensemble is formal but varies from ensemble to ensemble. Check with the director on specifics.
