NSO (New Student Orientation) Convocation: Choir and Orchestra PerformanceOpportunities
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.
