The department supports a variety of exciting choral and instrumental ensembles that perform frequently throughout the school year. Although some groups require an audition, students do not have to be music majors to participate.  Many ensembles can be joined at mid-year; see specific information.  Music department ensembles are taken for credit (.5 credit). Pep Band is an extracurricular ensemble.  Click on the links to the left for information on each group. The Performance Schedule tab has dates and times for upcoming concerts and events.

(foam ear plugs are provided in the instrumental rehearsal room TFA252), by avoiding excessive and prolonged exposure
to high sound levels, and by reading the following important advisory document:
