Performance Lab Students
Students enrolled in a performance lab course must participate in an ensemble as a course requirement. These students must be aware that they need to attend 80% of ensemble classes as they would any other SAM class in order to meet the course requirements. These students will do part checking in Weeks 10 or 11, depending on the ensemble, and will receive an ensemble grade and feedback.
Students must also register/audition for an ensemble during O-Week as all ensembles start in Week 1. If students find themselves not signed up to an ensemble by Week 1, they must contact their convenor immediately.
Below are details of how to sign up, or audition for each ensemble for Trimester 2020.
