NSO (New Student Orientation) Convocation – Choir/Orchestra and Jazz Combos Performance
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 or NSO Jazz Combos. 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 Orchestra, Choir or Jazz Combos, please complete this Performing Arts Interest form (new window) by July 1st, 2022. (*Please make sure to complete the second section that asks directly regarding NSO participation.) Ensemble Directors will be in touch following this deadline to provide additional participation details.
Please check back in the coming weeks for additional event information.
