Music

Performance is at the heart of your practice as a musician. In our music program, there are various student ensembles that you can join to perform with your peers while honing your craft. Membership in music ensembles is made up from the varied and talented GW community and is not limited to those only taking music classes and/or registered as a music major. All are encouraged to audition. Commitment requirements vary by ensemble. Auditions will be scheduled on as-needed basis. Students should contact ensemble directors with any questions and/or to set up an audition.
