When I arrived at Wash U, I was initially disappointed by the lack of options for students with musical interests. Sure, there’s the coffeehouse performances, the Histones (a low-commitment a cappella group), and the school musical, yet I found no orchestras or ensembles to join. Finally, after digging around on my own, I say fear not! The undergraduate music department has a plethora of ensembles that allow medical students to join. The professors are very friendly and flexible with your busy schedule. Just email the professors listed on the website and you’re all set!
