Students may perform as soloists or with small ensembles in a variety of concerts and are welcome to audition for the many department ensembles that give concerts each semester. Students join the ensembles for the semester and may take them for academic credit as adjunct courses.

Our ensembles include the Colorado College Choir (which is open to the community), a Chamber Orchestra, Concert Band, Big Band Jazz, and Chamber Chorus. The Collegium Musicum performs early music; our Gamelan ensemble, directed by a Balinese teacher, features traditional music, dance, and costumes. Bluegrass Ensembles are offered at various skill levels. Music Theatre productions, featuring current voice students, are presented each semester.

Additionally, the department may endorse student led and directed ensembles. Students can gain credit and coaching from the department for approved projects.
