I want to apply for chamber ensemble this quarter. What must I do?

You must complete an Application for Chamber Music Participation appropriate to your instrument, which may be found above​.

May I enroll in more than one chamber ensemble?

Undergraduates may enroll in a maximum of one chamber ensemble per quarter. Graduate students may enroll in a maximum of two ensembles per quarter. Individual exceptions may be made by chamber coordinators if there are particular needs in certain instrumentation or other extenuating circumstances.​

Should I apply for 0 or 1 credit enrollment?

All undergraduates must enroll in chamber music for 1 credit without exception. Graduate students may enroll in one chamber group for free (0 credit), but a second chamber ensemble must be 1 credit. Please keep track of your quarterly credit limits to avoid signing up for more credits than you are allowed or can afford.​

I can't enroll myself for Chamber Music on Campus Connect yet; what am I doing wrong?

Once your application is processed and approved, you will receive an email with the class number in which you may enroll yourself. You will not be able to enroll yourself before receiving this email.  After you have received the email and have enrolled yourself in the class, then you should check your course roster on Campus Connect before the last day to add classes to ensure that you enrolled in the right section and number of credits.

Students must have any financial blocks on their account removed or they will not be able to enroll themselves in classes. If a student has a financial block, then the student must contact DePaul Central, or the appropriate office in the University, in order to have the block lifted for enrollment.

Am I guaranteed enrollment if I submit an Application?

While Coordinators will make every effort to place you in an ensemble, your enrollment is not guaranteed and depends on the total number of applicants and available coaches. The final decision rests with the Coordinators.​

I want to participate in chamber music, but I don't know any instrumentalists or vocalists to form a group with. What do I do?

While students are encouraged apply as pre-formed groups, single applicants may request to be placed in a chamber ensemble – the Coordinators will do their best to place you in a group, but enrollment cannot be guaranteed. Either way, each individual member of an ensemble, pre-formed or not, must submit their own Application Form by the deadline or they will not be allowed to enroll.

Can I play a duo piece with one other student and have that count for chamber credit?

No, all chamber ensembles must have 3 or more musicians to be eligible for chamber credit. Furthermore, every member of the ensemble must be a registered School of Music student.

Are we allowed to request a specific faculty member as a coach?

Every effort will be made to honor student requests for a specific faculty coach, but the Coordinators will make the final decision on coaching assignments based on coaches' schedules and availabilities.

What happens if my group disbands or wishes to drop the course?

If an enrolled group decides to disband, it is the responsibility of each group member to drop themselves from the course by the university deadlines.​
