Regardless of your intended major, schedule, or ability level, Grand View has an ensemble for you. Ensembles are open to students throughout the university.
Grand View provides a variety of music scholarship opportunities for both incoming first-year and transfer students of all majors who participate in music.
|Grand View Choir
|The Grand View Choir performs for major university events, including Julefest, the annual Grand View Christmas celebration, Honors Convocation, and Baccalaureate, and tours each year during spring break. Membership in the choir is open to students of all majors by audition.
|Grand View Wind Ensemble
|The wind ensemble is comprised of music majors, music minors, and interested non majors. We perform for Family Day and Julefest in the fall, a spring concert in March, along with playing at the Honors Convocation and Commencement.
|Kantorei is a small vocal ensemble which sings a wide variety music and makes many off-campus appearances. Literature can consist of Christmas carols, madrigals, jazz standards and a host of other styles. Membership is selected by the director from the students in the Grand View Choir.
All students in ensembles are strongly encouraged to further their individual musicianship by taking private lessons. Lessons on woodwind, brass, percussion, and stringed instruments, piano, and voice are available from knowledgeable and highly skilled instructors.
|Grand View seeks to help all students explore and develop their own musical talents. To that end, private lessons are offered affordably to all students in piano, voice, guitar, and all woodwind, brass, percussion, and stringed instruments. Lessons consist of one half-hour of private instruction each week. Advanced students may take a double lesson with permission from their instructor.
