Creative involvement in musical ensembles is available to
all qualified students. Any student who meets audition requirements
may participate in a musical organization. Music majors must
enroll in at least one major ensemble appropriate to their
applied music concentration and/or area of teaching certification
every semester until graduation, as determined by the Dean
of the College of Fine Arts, regardless of the number of ensemble
credits accumulated. Students in music education must follow
this policy with the exception of the student-teaching semester.
Performing ensembles include the University Concert Chorale,
Chamber Singers, Consort Singers, University Ringers, Symphonic
Winds, Music Theater Practicum, and Opera Theater.
In addition to the financial aid programs administered by
the University, numerous music scholarships are available.
Qualifications are established primarily on the basis of performing
ability and are awarded by audition or competition. Scholarships
are awarded for one academic year. Renewal is not automatic
and is subject to the regulations stated in the music scholarship
agreement signed by the student. For further information regarding
music entrance/ scholarship auditions please contact the College
of Fine Arts office or see the DBU Department of Music website.
