Make music, make friends! 
You are welcome in our ensembles, 
whether you are a music major or not. 


Music Ensembles are General Education courses (Performance and Participation - Category 11). MSU Students need 2-3 Category 11 credits for General Education requirements.

Auditions are generally held during the first week of the semester. Some ensembles do not require an audition; they are open to everyone.

Some instruments are available to music ensemble members.

Please contact the director of the ensemble for more specific information or to set up an audition time.
