List of Boyer Ensembles

All students who play bowed string instruments and are registered for lessons perform in the symphony orchestra, with violin, viola and cello performance majors also placed with a chamber music ensemble each semester. Chamber ensembles have one coaching per week and perform near the end of each semester. Double bass students have the opportunity to work in bass class each semester (which rotates between bass ensemble music and orchestral repertoire), while harp and guitar students have seminar classes on their instruments and participate in mixed chamber music at least twice during their degree program. Harpists also perform in Boyer’s large ensembles as repertoire dictates.
