Cultivate your musical passion for singing, playing and performing in MSOE’s Music Program. The program offers both a non-academic opportunity through Student Life, providing students a positive and engaging distraction from the stresses of the classroom. Students can earn Humanities credit for participation in one of four concert ensembles.  Whether you're looking to earn credit or not, make sure to bring your passion for music!

All student musicians must complete the Music Registration Form, regardless of credit or non-credit involvement in the Music Program. Additionally, student musicians must have instructor permission and meet the following requirements:

  • 2 years of experience in an applicable high school music program ensemble, or equivalent experience. Special accommodations may be made at director’s discretion.
  • Able to read, rehearse and perform Grade 4 music.

Auditions are not required for participation in the music program, but may be used at director’s discretion for skills assessment and/or chair placements. 

Regardless of ensemble, all students enroll in HU4800 - Music Performance I. First year students, contact the Coordinator of Music Programs to enroll.
