Alethea is a NEW select women's chamber choir. Rehearsals are once per week. Audition required.

The Campus Community Band is designed to bring the campus and community together in a communal musical effort. Rehearsals are held on Tuesday evenings. Membership primarily is made up of people from throughout the Columbus area, but also includes CCC students. There are two on-campus performances each semester. Previous band experience is required.


The Columbus Brass is a new ensemble performing varied repertoire that ranges from Montiverdi to Mahler to the modern pep band. There are several performances each semester. Audition required.



Musical Theatre


Musicals are presented in the spring in conjunction with the Theatre Department. Audition required.  


Additional Information:


All ensembles perform throughout the year for high schools and community events, and participate in festivals in the Midwest and occasionally national conferences. 


Auditions for select ensembles are held in the spring for the following year. Information will be sent to area high schools about dates and times. Additional auditions may be held in the fall for interested students who miss the spring dates on a space-available basis. 


Scholarship opportunities are available to all participating students, not just music majors. 


You can pursue your passion for music in a setting that focuses on students as individuals. Our faculty will work with you personally to prepare you to either complete your bachelor’s degree at a four-year college or university, stay active in something you love, or find a new and possibly lifelong avocation.
