Performing Groups

Bowdoin's music ensembles are open to all students by audition, and in any given semester around ten percent of the entire student body participates. Performances occur on campus in the Chapel, the Tillotson Room, and in Studzinski Recital Hall, which opened in Spring 2007. There are also off-campus performances at other colleges and Tours to places such as Russia, Chile, and Western Europe. Repertoire includes the Western classical tradition, jazz, and world music. Check below or the links in the left-hand column for more information about each group.
