NSO (New Student Orientation) Convocation: Choir and Orchestra  Performance Opportunities

New Student Orientation Academic Convocation is a formal gathering of faculty, staff, students and families initiating your college career in a momentous ceremony and celebration. It is required for all incoming Georgetown University students.

The Department of Performing Arts, in conjunction with the University, allows students to participate in the ceremony by singing in the NSO Choir or playing in the NSO Orchestra. Students who do so enjoy many benefits, including an introduction to the music program at Georgetown, the ability to meet current students, and the opportunity to move into your dorm before the rush of returning students.

For those interested in participating in the NSO Choir or Orchestra, please complete this Performing Arts Interest form (new window) by July 1st2022. (*Please make sure to complete the second section directly referring to NSO participation.*) Ensemble Directors will be in touch following this deadline to provide additional participation details.


Georgetown University is a vaccinated campus. Events scheduled at this time to be held live are subject to change. 

The University may limit capacity in certain indoor venues at any time. Attendees should be fully vaccinated and as of Jan. 21, 2022, have received a COVID-19 vaccine booster shot when eligible, or to have an approved medical or religious exemption. Anyone with symptoms of COVID-19 needs to stay home. 

Since you have completed the vaccination documentation process in accordance with University protocols, you must only register in advance and present your current Georgetown University GO card upon arrival to a Department of Performing Arts-produced event.

Upon your registration for a Department of Performing Arts-produced event, you will receive an “ACTION REQUIRED: GU Visitor Registration, COVID protocol” e-mail sent to you from artsevents@georgetown.edu (new window). Please follow the steps in the e-mail IN ADVANCE OF YOUR VISIT in order to upload documentation and complete the required health attestation process.

Based on campus COVID-19 guidelines implemented March 21, masks are optional for students, staff, faculty, and visitors. During performances, artists will be performing and vocalizing without masks. Audience members may choose to mask or not in accordance with their respective personal comfort levels.

All faculty and student artists working on DPA performances are taking every precaution to adhere to the latest University Event and Visitor Guidelines and public health protocols, to prioritize the safety and comfort of audience members and the wider community. 

We are committed to the safety of our entire community, and will be monitoring the ongoing pandemic to make adjustments as needed. Thank you for your understanding and we look forward to sharing a vibrant season of events with you!
