Group music making is a core educational and experiential element of a major in Music. The Conservatorium offers a range of Large Music Ensembles which vary in size, duration and participation requirements each semester. Students enrolled in a variety of Music Practical Studies units (single instrument performance or composition) develop executive skills which are further demonstrated and enhanced by participation in a Large Music Ensemble. Satisfactory participation in these ensembles is a prerequisite for submitting for examination in the core Principal Studies or Practical Studies units.
Students are able to demonstrate performance skills in large ensemble performance.
Indicative assessments in this unit are as follows: participation in all rehearsals and performances. Further information is available in the unit outline.

To pass this unit, a student must: (a) achieve an overall mark of 50 per cent or higher for the unit; and (b) achieve the requisite requirements(s) or a mark of 50 per cent or greater, whichever is higher and specified in the unit outline, for the participation in all rehearsals and performances component.

The Conservatorium usually offers Orchestra, Wind Orchestra and Symphonic Chorus as approved large ensembles each semester. Students from all Music Practical Studies, Music Principal Studies and some Broadening Ensemble units rehearse and present a public performance.

Volunteer students are welcome to join with these ensembles subject to meeting audition requirements. Volunteer students should speak with the ensemble director prior to the start of each semester to determine suitability and, if approved, enrol in this unit.
