Performing Ensembles

Perform, Create, and Enjoy Music!

With over 100 years of excellence and tradition upon which to draw, our ensembles offer an array of performance opportunities to music majors, minors, and non-majors.  Learn under the direction of our nationally and internationally renowned conductors and faculty and continue your growth as a musician.  The UM School of Music offers performance opportunities including Wind Ensembles, Choirs, Jazz Bands, Jazz Combos, Orchestra, Marching Band, Pep Band, Electronic Music, and Chamber Groups.  We offer auditioned and non-auditioned ensembles as well as scholarship opportunities for participation in some groups.  

Our performing groups are some of the finest and most successful ensembles in the region.  UM ensembles have performed at the All-Northwest Convention, the American Choir Directors Association National Convention, the College Band Directors National Association Convention (Northwest/West), and toured throughout Montana and the Pacific Northwest.  Participation in a music ensemble can enrich your college experience and help you build friendships and memories that will last a lifetime!  Whatever your performance interests might be, we have an ensemble for you and would love to work with you as one of our performing musicians.
