Fine Arts Clubs and Activities
Minneapolis College offers several different musical ensembles for you to choose from. Our diverse student population is reflected in our global and multicultural approach to music. Students may register for credit by using the course designators listed below (such as MUSC 1320), or may participate without credit by contacting the appropriate director, listed below the ensemble descriptions.
The Minneapolis College Chamber Ensemble (MUSC 1330) is for instrumentalists who enjoy learning and performing works composed for chamber groups from a variety of genres and styles including classical, pop, and folk. Participants must provide their instrument with the exception of piano and some percussion.
The Minneapolis College Jazz Ensemble (MUSC 1340) is for instrumentalists who enjoy learning and performing Jazz styles from New Orleans to Fusion with an emphasis on combo, rather than Big Band. Participants must provide their instrument with the exception of piano, amplifiers, and drum trap set.

The Minneapolis College College Choir (MUSC 1310) is made up of members of the Minneapolis College community who love to sing. No previous musical background is required for membership in this chorus, and there is no need to audition. All you need is a willingness to work hard, a love of music, and a desire to sing with others.
The Minneapolis College Vocal Ensemble (MUSC 1320) is a choir made up of members of the Minneapolis College community who have some previous musical experience, and want more of a musical challenge.
