Non-Credit Bearing Chamber Ensembles

The Student Chamber Ensemble Music Entrepreneurship (SCEME) Project takes place in the Fall for vocalists and in the Spring for instrumentalists. These student-managed, faculty-coached ensembles provide a wonderful link to our student body and to the community through their self-initiated performances, and are rewarded with a stipend for completion of the project performance requirements.

Two vocal ensembles, the RedShirts and the TrebleMakers, are coached by Dr. Paul Hondorp. A scholarship string ensemble, the Pauli Quintet, is coached by Dr. Bill Scott.
