Can I play in the band or orchestra or sing in the choir if I am not a music major?

You do not have to be a music major to be in any of our ensembles.

You can be in University Band, Marching Band, or University Chorus without auditioning. Jazz Band, Symphonic Wind Ensemble, Concert Choir, Chamber Choir, Heartland Philharmonic Orchestra and Chamber Orchestra all require an audition.

Are the auditions for Majoring in Music and getting in an ensemble different?

Yes, they are. Music major auditions are performed once, usually before a student enrolls. Ensemble auditions happen each fall, the week before classes begin. Ensemble audition information and music is available on the Ensemble Audition page, usually by July 15 each summer.
