This ensemble explores the evolution of electronic music in the mainstream touching upon genres such as garage, UK garage, deep house, trop house, 2-step, electronica, post-dubstep, indie pop, nu-disco, and alternative R&B, as well as other parallel genres. Working as a full ensemble as well as in smaller groups, students attend weekly rehearsals and will present an end-of-semester concert.
