Ensembles

Not all students focus on solo performance during their studies. However, opportunities to make music with other musicians in larger ensembles are vital to fostering student learning in music and enriching the artistic life of the community at large. IU Southeast offers several major ensembles to students and community musicians.

Instrumental

  • IU Southeast Orchestra
  • IU Southeast Concert Band
  • Commonwealth Brass Band

Vocal

  • IU Southeast Concert Choir
  • IU Southeast Community Chorus

Since IU Southeast is first and foremost an institution for learning, we have a responsibility to provide a quality educational program for our student population. By the time a student graduates from Indiana University Southeast, he/she must have obtained sufficient experience in ensemble performance at an advanced level. Because of this, the directors of ensembles at Indiana University Southeast are obligated to place active students in leadership roles that will provide them with this very important aspect of their education. Although open to all students, faculty, staff and community, the criteria for and decisions on acceptance, chair assignments, and solo opportunities are to be made at the discretion of the director in light of the mission statement. Acceptance into a performing ensemble is based upon an informal audition. Please contact the appropriate director to schedule a meeting. Students should not register for an ensemble until admission is approved by the director
