Performance venues span 100,000+ seat stadiums, famous concert halls, national and state music conventions, European cathedrals, small recital spaces, Presidential Inaugural Parades and many others.
Our students come from every department and major at A&M. Students find there is time to be a part of the ensembles while maintaining their busy schedule at A&M. Membership in each of the groups requires prior experience and therefore an audition should be completed before joining any ensemble.
