Middle School Outreach Ensembles

An Inspiring Music Learning Experience for Developing Middle School Musicians

Since 2014, the Middle School Outreach Ensembles @CSU has provided an inspirational large ensemble experience in addition to the great instruction that students receive in their middle school band and orchestra programs.

The band and orchestra ensembles are for middle school students from the Fort Collins area. Over a period of three months, students receive instruction in large ensemble rehearsals and individualized attention in small-group sectionals.

Join the ensembles for 11 weeks of exciting ensemble and sectional rehearsals taught by CSU faculty, undergraduate and graduate music education majors, and select high school band students. The program concludes with a concert in the state-of-the-art Griffin Concert Hall at the University Center for the Arts at Colorado State University.
