Ensembles are the public face of Miami's Department of Music. In a given semester more than 10% of all Miami students participate in a music ensemble or performing group. Student ensembles frequently travel and have been received warmly from the halls of Europe to Carnegie Hall.


Miami University music ensembles are open to all Miami students regardless of major. Please consult the Ensemble Auditions page for detailed audition requirements. The directors of the ensembles welcome all students interested in auditioning and try to make the auditions a comfortable experience. If you have additional questions, please email or call the director of the ensemble.
