Join a variety of musical groups

Students who choose to study performance, composition, or music education do so through ensemble participation, private lessons, and courses in music history and theory.

All students, regardless of major, are eligible to participate in any of the music ensembles at Trinity. Separate auditions are held every fall for the University's various performing ensembles, which are open to all Trinity students.

Performing Ensemble Highlights Include:

  • Annual fall and spring performances of major choral and orchestral masterworks
  • Performances in San Antonio, throughout Texas, across the nation, and around the world
  • Christmas Concert in Laurie Auditorium & Candlelight Christmas Vespers service in Parker Chapel
  • Trinity University Music Department Statement Regarding COVID-19 

    The impact of the COVID-19 outbreak has caused each of us to make significant changes in what we do and how we do it. While in the Music Department we are currently engaged in ensembles, private lessons, and music classes on campus this semester, we have enacted protocols to ensure everyone’s safety, health, and well-being. 

    Procedures include mask-wearing; safe distancing; hand sanitizers, wipes, and other disinfectants in all rooms; reduced  rehearsal meeting times and limits on group meeting size; and the addition of air filtration systems to enhance the recirculation of air. These efforts, along with the cooperation and compliance of our students, has enabled the Music Department to continue with its diversity of offerings in a very difficult time.
