Webster University offers you numerous student-centered jazz and classical, vocal, and instrumental ensembles. Most ensembles are open to all university students. Regardless of your major field of study, you'll find your place in a Webster ensemble!
Auditions for all ensembles take place during the first week of classes during the fall semester. Rehearsals begin as soon as the ensemble personnel is determined. Audition information is posted in the Thompson Music Building, and on this website during before each school year.
You may also contact the Music Office (314-968-7032) or the individual ensemble directors for audition details.
Each ensemble presents a variety of programs during the academic year, both on and off campus or on tour. Please see the Department of Music Performance Calendar for concert information.
Prospective students are always welcome to attend rehearsals. All students of any kind are admitted to all concerts at no charge.
