String Ensemble, which includes String Quartet and other such ensembles, is a course that develops an advanced young musician's sense of collaboration to achieve a common voice. Each instrument in this setting is equally vital, and participation requires strict commitment for the year.
The String Ensemble repertoire varies from beloved classics to challenging contemporary works. The groups are featured in concerts and other University events, both on and off campus. In addition to the weekly coaching, the ensemble must rehearse regularly.
Membership in String Ensemble is open to Music majors, Music minors, and nonmajors, and is by audition or recommendation.
