UI Symphony Band in concert

Performance is a core component of all of our programs. Our more than 30 ensembles, large and small, are filled with students pursuing their passion for making music on and off campus. The University of Iowa takes pride in the quality of our ensembles, but most of all, we care about the achievement of our students.

Auditions

See Ensemble Auditions. Auditions for ensembles are held just before the beginning of the fall semester and the first day of classes. Students interested in auditioning should sign up for an audition time.
