We welcome musicians of all levels of experience, both music majors and non-music majors, in the AU Instrumental Ensembles. All new members must schedule an audition with the director of the program. Auditions are simple and designed to be stress-free. They will assist the professor in placing you in the optimum ensemble for your skill level. You need not be an accomplished musician to participate.
