Performing Ensembles

Open Participation!

All WWU students are welcome to join our ensembles and placement is determined regardless of major or year in school!

University Choirs and Viking Band can be joined without a prior audition. All other ensembles require an audition for enrollment and placement. Please see our ensemble auditions page for more information!


All students must register for an ensemble to participate. The only exception is Viking Band, which is not offered as a course. Students will not be able to register for an auditioned ensemble until after auditions results have been posted in September. Students may register for University Treble and Tenor/Bass choirs at any time through Web4U.


Each course is repeatable for credit and can be used towards graduation requirements, including upper-division, elective, and total 180 credits required.

Instrumental Rental

If you currently do not own your instrument, we offer low-cost instrumental rentals ($50-45 per quarter) through our instrumental library. For more information regarding instrumental rentals please email the instrumental library.

We cannot guarantee instrument rentals for ensemble auditions.
