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.
For those interested in participating in the NSO Choir or Orchestra, please complete this Performing Arts Interest form (new window)by July 1st, 2022. (*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. We encourage, but do not require, the use of masks indoors, in compliance with the University’s public health guidelines, which may include additional guest registration protocols in effect at the time of the event. The University may limit capacity in certain indoor venues at any time. Attendees should be fully vaccinated, and anyone with symptoms of COVID-19 needs to stay home.
All faculty and student artists working on DPA performances are taking every precaution to adhere to protocols and the latest public health guidelines, and to prioritize the safety and comfort of audience members and the wider community.
