Student Music Ensembles

The UNO Department of Music has a large variety of performance ensembles which are open to music majors and non-music majors. Some ensembles require an audition to participate, but there are several for which no audition is required. Ensembles requiring an audition will demand a higher level of dedication and considerably more practice time to learn music outside of rehearsals. Several of the auditioned ensembles take trips overseas every other year. Participation in one of these ensembles gives students an opportunity to travel to Europe, Japan, or other parts of the world with the ensemble.

The following ensembles require an audition before you can participate:

Concert Choir
Chamber Choir
Symphonic Wind Ensemble
Jazz Band I and II and Jazz Combos
Heartland Philharmonic Orchestra
Chamber Orchestra
Ensemble 768 | New Music Ensemble
Low Down | Low Brass Ensemble
Horn Ensemble
Trumpet Ensemble
Percussion Ensemble

The following ensembles are open to join with no audition:

Marching Mavericks
University Chorus
University Band
Heartland Community Flute Choir
