Each year, students and faculty of the School of Music present more than 150 concerts, recitals, and staged performances in Las Vegas. Our orchestras, bands, and choirs are augmented by numerous solo and small-ensemble performances. All UNLV ensembles are open to any UNLV student, and most require previous experience and an audition. Various ensembles specialize in early music, contemporary music, classical and contemporary music, jazz and improvisation, and many other eclectic styles of music.
