Most musicians perform in or lead various types of ensembles throughout their careers. All musicians learn a myriad of performing and teaching skills through their experiences of performing in these groups. Therefore, to help students to develop the requisite skills, all music majors must register for the required ensemble(s). It is recommended that each student participates in more than one ensemble and that music education majors participate in both instrumental and vocal/choral ensembles. Students may receive Physical Education credit for Marching Band by registering for PWLA 2611.
The various UWG ensembles require an audition for either placement or admission, and all students must enroll. Fall auditions take place prior to the beginning of the semester and during the first week of classes. All auditions are completed prior to the close of the drop/add period. Please contact the appropriate ensemble director for information regarding membership in a performing group.
