Performing Ensembles

The UK School of Music provides plentiful opportunities for students to participate in music making, whether as a music major, music minor on non-music student.

Auditions for most ensembles are held around the first week of classes each semester. Sign-up for auditions is normally posted on the bulletin boards on the lower level of the Fine Arts Building. To find out more specifics, select one of the individual ensembles on the right. For questions about participation in an ensemble, contact the ensemble director.
