Sorry, I think that I'm thinking about this wrong. Do the ensembles count as classes or are they extracurricular activities? I'm used to chorus as a class every day and the descriptions of the ensembles led me to believe that they were kind of like an extracurricular club type thing rather than a class. Also, my friends at App had a chorus class this semester that met one day a week for 3 hours and I guess I was wondering if there were any classes like that. I'm not looking for a huge time commitment for one specific activity my first semester, but if the ensemble is a class, that's different.
On that note, how difficult is it to get into the groups? I'm an alto and was in my school's chamber chorus. I can't say I'm an amazing sightreader but my director focuses much more on sightreading than most others, at least from what I saw from working at the NC chorus Festival earlier this year.
