A minimum of 12 credits from the above ensemble courses are required. The courses may be repeated each year. Please refer below for details on the specific requirements for each instrument.

In the performance profile, up to 24 ensemble credits may count toward the program requirements. In other profiles (general, musicology/theory, education, piano pedagogy or composition), a maximum of 18 ensemble credits may count toward the program requirements.

Registration in a choir (MUS3904 or MUS3905) is compulsory for all first- and second-year students with the exception of students registered in Orchestra (MUS3901).
In the Performance profile, you must register in ensemble courses in each of the four years according to the requirements of your instrumental sector. In other profiles, registration in ensemble courses is required in only three of the years.

Participation in ensembles outside the School of Music does not fulfill the ensemble requirements of the program. Only the above courses satisfy your program requirements.

Registration to some ensembles may be conditional upon a successful audition. If you are not selected after the audition, you must withdraw from the course.
