The UWM at Washington County campus offers both chorus and band opportunities for students and community members to join.
Community members can register through the Continuing Education catalog.
The Moraine Chorus is a mixed “communiversity” chorus consisting of community members and UWM at Washington County students. The repertoire includes great choral works by Mendelssohn, Brahms, Mozart, Bach and others, as well as lighter pieces.
New members are always welcome. There are no auditions, and no experience is necessary to join. Rehearsals are on Mondays from 7 to 9 p.m. in Room FA229.

Moraine Symphonic Band
The Moraine Symphonic Band provides an outlet for musicians to express their musicality, whether they are coming from high school, college, professional ranks or the community. Members are able to work with musicians of various skill levels and get the opportunity to play their instruments in an orchestral setting.
Building community through musical performance, the band explores a variety of different genres, from the standard concert repertoire to 21st century music, jazz, pop-rock, world and folk.
