The DePauw University School of Music is home to 6 unique large ensembles: University Orchestra, University Band, Jazz Ensemble, University Choir, Festival Choir, and Vox Animae. These large-scale collaborations give each student an opportunity to perform with their peers and perform great repertoire of old as well as contemporary masterworks. Pictured here is a photo from our Concerto Winners’ concert: each student can compete in a friendly competition for the chance to perform concerto-style rep alongside the orchestra!
Alongside our required large ensembles, we also have various chamber groups, studio performances, and the Symphonic Band, a School of Music and College of Liberal Arts collaborative ensemble that includes students from both schools as well as faculty. The Festival Choir is another opportunity for DePauw-Greencastle collaboration as Voice Majors, CLA students, faculty, staff, and community members come together to perform incredible repertoire!
