Choral Union Requirement
Throughout the time of study at the college, Music majors are required to enroll in the Choral Union unless excused by the department chair (usually by substituting other professional endeavors). The number of ensemble credits required is indicated in each specific music major. (see below)
All degree programs require enrollment in a second. Voice and Piano majors are required to participate in the A Cappella choir each semester; Instrumental Majors are required to participate in the Symphonic Winds each semester. Performance majors have additional ensemble requirements.
Instrumental Performance majors are required to enroll in the Symphonic Wind Ensemble. Students whose primary applied area is a stringed instrument may earn ensemble credit for participation in the Quincy Symphony Orchestra or a similar ensemble approved by the Music Department.
