The Division of Conducting & Ensembles consists of five areas: Choral Studies, Early Music Ensembles, Opera, Orchestral Studies, and Wind Studies. The division serves two functions: the education of conductors and the direction of a great number of large university ensembles and dozens of smaller groups involving over one thousand students in ensemble experiences widely recognized as among the finest in the nation.
College of Music ensembles appear regularly at prestigious state, national and international conferences including the American Choral Directors Association, the College Band Directors National Conference, the Music Educators National Conference, the International Association of Jazz Educators, the Boston Early Music Festival, the National Collegiate Choral Organization, and many others.
