Ensembles at Rensselaer

Who We Are

Housed within the Arts Department in the School of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences, our mission is to provide inclusive spaces for Rensselaer students to gather, collaborate, learn, and perform. We aim to provide opportunities and program music that reflects the diversity of our student musicians. We also seek to use music to build connections within the Rensselaer campus and with the local community. We hope you will join us as a musician, listener, or supporter.
