Music Department Ensembles

Pomona Ensembles

Pomona College's musical ensembles, which draw their membership from all the Claremont Colleges and the local community, present concerts of high caliber each semester. They are open to all qualified students regardless of major. The list currently includes the Pomona College Choir, Glee Club, Pomona College Orchestra, Concert Band, Jazz Ensemble, Balinese Gamelan, and various chamber groups. A second non-Western music ensemble changes its emphasis from year to year, and its focus has included West African drumming and dance, Flamenco guitar and percussion, North Indian tabla, and Hindustani music. Music students benefit from superb concert halls and practice facilities, a variety of pipe organs, numerous Steinway pianos, and a collection of string and wind instruments.
