Both the UTSA Wind Ensemble and the UTSA Symphonic Band are two ensembles that require students to audition. These ensembles are comprised of both music and non-music majors. Audition dates and times will be updated per audition. Auditions happen at the start of each fall and spring semester. Band placements are determined by the students audition results.
The Department also offers a third option for students. The UTSA University Band is a non audition ensemble comprised mainly of non-music majors. It performs a standard three concert schedule each semester here at UTSA and offers students an enjoyable and fun musical outlet. All ensembles serve as hourly credits and serve towards the students cumulative GPA.
