Performing Ensembles

The Music Department regards active music-making to be an essential part of the college experience. SSU ensembles are open to all students, regardless of major.

Ensembles count as one unit of credit. Most, but not all, require auditions.

To provide this experience, the department offers a wide range of ensembles both vocal and instrumental.

  • All music majors (performance, jazz studies, liberal arts, and music education) must declare a major performance medium (instrument or voice) upon entering their program of study.
  • ​Every music major is required to be in one major performing ensemble during each semester of residence in which they play their declared performance medium (instrument or voice). Students may be invited to play in additional major ensembles.​
  • Students may substitute a minor ensemble for a major ensemble only with the approval of their adviser and the department chair.
