The Department of Music presents more than 100 concerts each
year, providing many opportunities for students. Audition
sign-ups for music department ensembles begin in early September
for Fall Quarter, or about a month prior to the start of the next
quarter. For more information, visit the department main office
(Room 112, Music Building), email
the staff, or call (530) 752-5537.
Auditions are not required to enter the music
major. Each ensemble has different audition dates, times, and
requirements. See below for more information.
Whether it is the UC Davis Symphony Orchestra, the Concert Band,
University Chorus, a chamber ensemble, or any of our other
performing groups—such as our Indonesian Gamelan Ensemble—we have
information for you on how to audition and participate. If you are
looking for information on how to go about enrolling,
auditioning, or paying for music lessons, please see our
information page on lessons.
