If you performed in an ensemble while attending high school, you may want to audition for any of our vocal or instrumental ensembles. Being a music major is not a prerequisite for performing in any of our ensembles. Auditions are held the week before classes begin each fall and spring semester. You can earn 1 elective credit hour toward your bachelorís degree while in an ensemble, which rehearses from four to six hours each week.
Several of these ensembles perform on national and international tours and release recordings.
Courses focusing on music appreciation, music theory, 19th- and 20th-century music, and music cultures of the world are available to all students. These courses fulfill the visual and performing arts requirement or the humanities requirement of the universityís core curriculum. For detailed information about the courses, consult the UNT Undergraduate Catalog at www.unt.edu/catalog.
With permission from the college, you can also enroll in applied lessons for 1 credit hour. More information about enrolling in a music course or taking applied lessons is available by contacting the College of Musicís Undergraduate Advising Office at 940-369- 7771.
