The UIS Music Program, led by a talented team of UIS Music faculty and staff, provides a variety of opportunities for playing and performing. Musical ensembles and affiliated musical organizations are open to students, faculty, staff and Springfield community members.
Music ensembles at UIS include chorus, band and chamber orchestra. Each ensemble performs at a number of concerts each year, including a fall and spring showcase concert at UIS. In addition, many musicians choose to audition to play in the basketball pep band or jazz combo. Plus there are a number of student-created music ensembles on campus.
