Participation in instrumental or vocal ensembles is a major feature of degree and diploma study at Peabody, providing an experience that is essential to one’s professional training. Please consult the Conservatory Catalog for the specific ensemble requirements of your degree program. Students wishing to take ensembles at times other than those specified should petition the Ensemble Program Manager, Melina Gajger, for permission to do so. Permission will generally only be granted in situations where irresolvable schedule conflicts prevent a student from taking a large ensemble during the specified semester.
For Fall 2020, Peabody’s ensembles are combined into a single course called Ensemble, a 2 credit per semester course. Students are automatically enrolled in the course and will be issued a single letter grade each semester, reflecting participation and achievement.
