Over 300 Performance Opportunities

At Lamont, you'll participate as a performer, composer or conductor in one of our many ensembles. These include orchestra, opera, choir, jazz and world music groups, and more.

Performances take place in the state-of-the-art Newman Center for the Performing Arts, one of the finest facilities of its kind in the nation. The building features four distinct venues, including the 977-seat Gates Concert Hall.

While our ensembles are mostly composed of music majors, all are welcome to audition.
