The Department of Music offers opportunities for students to participate in large ensembles such as Band, Choir, and Orchestra as well as a variety of smaller groups. All ensembles are open by audition to any UTSA student regardless of major. In the bands area UTSA offers three different ensembles in which students can perform in!
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 music for these ensembles will be released two weeks prior to the start of a new semester. The music will be available for download online.
Students will sign up for an audition time online. Audition dates and times will be updated per audition.
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.
Prospective students interested in becoming a UTSA music major should arrange for a department tour!
With a department tour, students will have the opportunity to meet UTSA Music faculty as well as sit in on an ensemble rehearsal. It's a great way to familiarize prospective students with the daily routine of a music major. Students will also be able to tour the campus during their visit.
