Students interested in performance will find many opportunities at Carleton. All groups hold open auditions, offer credit, and perform once or twice each term. In addition, many students perform in junior and senior recitals, mixed student recitals, chamber ensembles, and student-formed a cappella groups.

Auditions for Carleton ensembles take place during New Student Week for first-year students. Check the New Student Week information for audition dates, times and locations. Information can also be found on the bulletin board in the Music Hall.

There are several student-run musical groups not sponsored by the Department of Music and these groups often have auditions the first or second week of classes.

Current students should consult the information below and email ensemble directors if they still have questions about auditioning.
