How to Join an Ensemble

Rocky-Mountain-Tops.JPGAll CC students are welcome to participate in any of the department ensembles which present concerts each semester. An option to earn academic creidt by registering for ensembles as a semester-long adjunct course is offered. Details on how to join are found on each ensemble's page.

Our large ensembles include the Colorado College Choir (which is open to the community), Chamber Chorus, Concert Band, Chamber Orchestra, and Tiger Jazz. Bluegrass Ensembles - offered at various skill levels, Collegium Musicum - which performs early music, and Gamelan Ensemble - directed by a Balinese master teacher and featuring traditional music, dance, and costumes, are among our unique performance opportunities. Musical Theatre productions, featuring current voice students, are presented each semester.

Additionally, the department may endorse student led and directed ensembles. Students can gain credit and coaching from the department for approved projects.
