The Music Department has a thriving instrumental ensemble program, showcasing students in more than fifteen public performances each season.
All students, regardless of major, are welcome to participate in our various offerings. Most rehearsals take place after 4:30 p.m. or during common hour and are scheduled to avoid conflict with the class day.
Our two largest, auditioned ensembles include the Davidson College Symphony Orchestra (DCSO) and Jazz Ensemble. Other ensembles include African Drumming Ensemble, Appalachian Ensemble, Jazz Combo, and Saxophone Quartet.
