The Colorado College (advanced) Bluegrass Ensemble is an instrumental and vocal band created to provide for students a challenging and creative environment in which to develop material with the feel and structure of bluegrass music. The ensemble draws mainly from traditional sources including Bill Monroe, Flatt and Scruggs, Jimmy Martin, and the Stanley Brothers. The ensemble frequently performs at the Durango Bluegrass Meltdown, held annually in April. The ensemble receives academic credit and is by audition only.
The intermediate Bluegrass Ensemble takes the skills developed in the beginning ensemble and moves it further into the performance realm. The ensemble receives academic credit and is by audition only.
