Performance opportunities abound at UMD! With approximately 30 active ensembles and dozens of chamber groups, our rehearsal and performance halls are alive with activity. Performance plays a crucial role in the education of music majors, and our curriculum capitalizes on exceptional facilities and abundant talent. Special emphasis is placed on developing well-rounded performers who are equally adept as soloists, chamber musicians, and large ensemble members.
Ensembles fulfill important degree requirements but may be offered with a non-credit option. Some ensembles welcome non-majors and UMD faculty & staff, as well as local community members. Ensembles enjoy production and promotional support from the Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center, presenting more than one hundred performances each year in the Center's specialized venues.
