Students interested in performance will find many opportunities at Carleton. Instrumental groups at Carleton include the Carleton Orchestra, the Carleton Symphony Band, the Carleton Jazz Ensemble, the Carleton African Drum Ensemble, the Carleton Mbira & Karimba Ensembles, the Carleton Chinese Music Ensemble, and Chamber Music groups. Choral groups include the Carleton Choir (Bella Cantemus and Men's Chorus) and the Carleton Chamber Singers. All groups hold open auditions, offer credit, and perform once or twice each term. In addition, many students perform in junior and senior recitals, mixed student recitals, chamber ensembles, and student-formed a cappella groups.
