MUS 59 Ensemble Performance and Leadership
Students participating in Hopkins Center music ensembles may enroll in this three-term course to develop additional knowledge and skills in ensemble performance, music history and theory, and organization. Students will work with their ensemble director to create an individual portfolio consisting of musicianship topics taken over three terms of ensemble study. The final grade will be based on demonstrated individual achievement in the chosen topics and in a final project or performance.
Auditions for Hopkins Center Ensembles
Auditions for the Hopkins Center Ensembles are usually held just before the start of the fall term. The audition requirements differ for each ensemble; audition questions should be directed to the individual ensemble director.
