It is expected that ensembles rehearse regularly outside the formal supervised times.
In the case of composition students, this subject involves participation in directing/conducting a variety of ensembles.
Various large ensembles are arranged yearly depending on the student cohort and specific departmental and cross-departmental instrumental and vocal make up.
