The University of Washington instrumental ensemble program includes five large concert ensembles and over 400 student musicians from across campus—from freshman to grad students, from anthropology to zoology majors.
The Wind Ensemble (MUSEN 301/501), Symphonic Band (MUSEN 302/502) and Symphony Orchestra (MUSEN 300/500) are the top auditioned concert ensembles at the University of Washington, performing a repertoire of classic, contemporary and newly commissioned music. These groups offer a high level of musical challenge and opportunities for large group, chamber and one-on-a-part performance experiences.
Membership is open to students from all schools and departments of the UW—over half of the musicians in these ensembles are from majors other than music! And remember, performance in a UW ensemble counts toward VLPA credit requirements.
Brass, woodwind and percussion auditions for Fall 2013 will be held on Monday and Tuesday, September 23 and 24 at Meany Hall 268.
