Music Ensembles

Our music ensembles are open to all students at NC State. Join one and find a creative outlet that will enhance your NC State experience.

Find your Pack with music at NC State.

Do something you love, continue your musical development, and be a part of our thriving music community when you enroll in an NC State performing ensemble.

More than 500 student-musicians representing every college on campus participate in vocal and instrumental performance ensembles each semester. Each class can be repeated for course credit, and admission is open by audition.

Feeling nervous about auditioning? Try our symphonic band (MUS 135) to start, which doesn’t require an audition.

Singing in the choirs and being a music minor at NC State has legit given me some of the best memories and friends that I’ve ever had.
