Ensembles

Welcome to the Department of Music Ensembles at Stanford!

During Winter and Spring Quarter, please contact instructors directly for audition information.

The Department of Music hosts several performing ensembles and combos.  Participation is not limited to Music majors, but auditions are required. Some ensembles are open to community members.  If you are new to Stanford, you will have to audition, regardless of whether or not you submitted a supplemental audition.  Some ensembles require students to audition each year. Be prepared to play études, a sonata, a concerto excerpt, or anything else that demonstrates your abilities. For audition information in Winter or Spring Quarter, please contact the individual ensemble directors via email.

As of Autumn 2014, ALL STUDENTS ARE REQUIRED TO REGISTER FOR ENSEMBLES.  A Zero Unit Enrollment option has been created for graduate students and for students unable to enroll in lessons or ensembles.  Please review our Zero Unit Enrollment policy to learn how to enroll.
