Composed of both music and non-music majors, Commercial Ensembles perform each semester at MSUM. This ensemble credit often serves as a launching pad/rehearsal platform for groups that eventually seek to perform and tour across the region under their own direction. Each band auditions as a unit for acceptance into the program at the beginning of each semester. Once accepted, they are given access to MSUM music facilities and are given an opportunity to present one on-campus performance each semester (via audition) under the guidance of Professor Nick Fryer.
