Music ensembles are a key component of the curriculum.

We believe that ensembles will: 

  • Expose you to new work
  • Challenge and expand your proficiencies
  • Connect you to others interested in and passionate about playing music
  • Spark creative collaborations

Not a music major? That's okay with us! Ensembles are a great way to bring your music to Virginia Tech.

The course is open to any student in the Virginia Tech community, including all instrument and voice types, with director and applied faculty approval.  For more information please contact Kyle Hutchins.
