Coronavirus Important Updates

ANNOUNCEMENT: This ensemble will be student-only for the Fall 2020 semester due to health and safety concerns during the current pandemic.  We hope to be able to include community members again in the Spring 2021 semester provided that conditions have improved significantly by then.  We apologize for any inconvenience or disappointment that this change will cause.  Students will still need to audition and should check this page for updated audition requirements and procedures.
