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. See our ensembles page for information specific to each performing group.
