Music Ensembles

To watch live performances of the OCU ensembles from your computer, just go to the Bass School’s online streaming site.

At the Bass School of Music, instrumentalists gain experience in all genres and periods, from the classical to the cutting edge. Each of our classrooms, teaching studios, practice rooms, rehearsal spaces and performance halls features at least one Steinway piano, representing the highest level of sound and color in music.More than 200 performances – ranging from solo recitals to collaborations involving several ensembles – are staged each year.

Instrumental performance majors receive individual attention from faculty mentors who continue to perform professionally and who love to teach. Students learn a deeper appreciation of the repertoire through interpretation, performance and collaboration. They are encouraged to expand their range by conducting ensembles, forming new groups, and creating original works to be read and recorded.
