Performance stands as a defining measure of music scholarship. While developing both competence and character, it also proves mastery, artistry, and professionalism. The School of Music provides a vast array of performance ensembles (auditions required), spanning several genres. As individuals within these groups mature musically, the ensembles themselves minister to countless people through local church performances and major orchestral and symphonic events.
Students who participate in an APU music ensemble develop close relationships with other musicians and faculty directors/conductors, gain real-world audition and performance experience, and travel across the country and throughout California performing in various venues for a wide variety of audiences. Students who qualify can also take advantage of scholarship opportunities.
