WESTMINSTER'S INSTRUMENTAL PROGRAM: PERFORMANCE OPPORTUNITIES

 

 WESTMINSTER CHAMBER ORCHESTRA

This ensemble is designed especially for string, woodwind, and brass players. A spectrum of classical styles is typically covered in the course of a year, but most repertoire is taken from the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. May be repeated for credit. Upper-division credit earned beginning with third semester. Audition required.

 

 

 WESTMINSTER jazz ensemble

This ensemble is actively trained in the art of jazz improvisation and typically performs at least once a semester. Students may participate in this ensemble with instruments of their choice; the instrumental make-up of the group changes from semester to semester, depending on the instruments students bring. May be repeated for credit. Upper-division credit earned beginning with third semester. Audition required.

   

WESTMINSTER PERCUSSION ENSEMBLE

This class provides an opportunity to investigate rhythm and a wide variety of interesting percussion instruments and tone colors in the social setting of a performing ensemble. At least one performance will be given on campus every semester, involving everyone in the class. Beginners and more experienced players are welcome. May be repeated for credit. Upper-division credit earned beginning with third semester. No audition required at this time.

 

 

CHAMBER MUSIC

This class provides Westminster music students—music majors, minors, and otherwise—with an opportunity to join a small group of musicians (2-10 players) in studying and performing great music written specifically for small groups with one player per part. Class time will take the form of the professor coaching each group separately with all groups present. May be repeated for credit. Upper-division credit earned beginning with third semester. Audition required.
