Pan-American Ensemble

VSU’s Pan-American Ensemble (MUSC 3890 A) was founded in the spring of 2009 as an offshoot of PERS 2695. This group, which is represented by approximately fifteen musicians from departments across campus each semester, gives students the opportunity to perform folk music from many different cultures spanning the western hemisphere including: Argentine tango, Brazilian choros, Bluegrass, Appalachian fiddling, music from the Andean mountains, western swing, Salsa, Americana and Mexican mariachi

  • Do you like mariachi, tango, bossa nova, choro, bluegrass, and/or Irish traditional music?
  • Do you have no idea what those even mean but think they sound cool?
  • Do you play the guitar, violin, piano, trumpet, flute, bass, accordion, bandonéon, vihuela, guitarón, or something like them?
  • Has American Idol convinced you that you can sing?

Then you should join VSU’s Pan-American Ensemble!

Bring your instruments or you’ll be stuck with your vocal chords. Spring 2013 we meet Mondays and Wednesdays from 3-4pm in the Music Annex North Ensemble Room
