Make music with college students

If you play a musical instrument or sing, and like being around undergraduate students, you might find an outlet at the University of Illinois Springfield.

The UIS Music Ensembles are open to students, staff, faculty, alumni and community members, and rehearsals for several groups start next week in Room 33 at the Visual and Performing Arts Building on campus.

You can even get academic credit for these groups:
UIS Band: 4-5:50 p.m. Mondays.
UIS Chorus: 7-9:15 p.m. Tuesdays and 3:30-5:30 p.m. Thursdays.
UIS Chamber Orchestra: 5:40-7:30 p.m. Thursdays.

Other groups you can check out:

UIS Old Time Jam: 7-9:30 p.m. the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month.
UIS pep bands: The group performs at home basketball games

For more information, go online at www.uis.edu/music, or contact Sharon Graf, director of co-curricular music, at 206-6570 or sgraf1@uis.edu.
