Brass & Percussion 


  • All students majoring in a discipline other than music are welcome to participate in our bands or choirs. To join any of our ensembles, you should enroll in the following course(s) during your academic advisement appointment.  Enroll in MUS 1501-001 if you want to participate in marching band (audition not required).  Enroll in MUS 1681-001 if you want to join our non-auditioned choir, Concert Chorale.  Once you have signed up for the course, the director of that ensemble will contact you over the summer months with further information about pre-school rehearsals and the fall performance schedule for that particular ensemble.
