Our ensembles perform major works at the collegiate level in a variety of genres and styles. The faculty, conductors and counselors, who join students in all ensembles, represent major universities, conservatories and ensembles across the globe. As a result, students leave with stronger performance standards, a greater appreciation of the arts, and as members of a global musical community.
