School of Music Ensembles
The skills you will call upon most often as a professional musician are obtained outside the classroom walls. It is here, through Ensemble participation and play, where pedagogy and practice come together in a way that no lecture hall can replicate. Your artistry and individual style will come alive as you take part in one or more of our Ensemble offerings. We have a mix of audition-only and open Ensembles, each with extensive performance opportunities not only on campus but throughout the thriving arts scene and creative hub that surrounds us in the musically rich city of Memphis.

CHAMBER PLAYERS PROGRAM
Students who are selected for the Chamber Players Program provide leadership among their peers, hone their skills as performers, and serve as ambassadors for the School of Music. Students are most often top instrumental performers who, in addition to their regular academic and music curriculum, perform in a distinguished chamber ensemble for all four years of study.
