Meet the four men of 2015 Ensemble 109, auditioned from every major across the student body at the University of Texas at Austin. The women of 109 set a very high bar that only four men could meet. Consequently; four men and twelve women, all equals in this musical vocal group.
Meet the women of Ensemble 109, Fall 2015. Auditions are open to any student registered at the University of Texas at Austin. These singers below were chosen through a unique and intensive audition process. Beyond having wonderful voices, their musical intelligence is very high. These are qualities that TV audition shows simply do not measure.
The Butler School of Music Ensemble 109 at the University of Texas at Austin directly supports the College of Fine Arts curricula in the recording, theatrical, and commercial arts. This vocal ensemble is designed for students of all majors who exhibit both aptitude and interest across
the vocal arts, especially those who seek training to become a recording "session singer," which may be the most valid and sustainable career in singing; inclusive of all genres.
Powell Studio Productions is ready for the 2015-16 singers of Ensemble 109, the Butler School of Music's elite recording and performing vocal ensemble. We have installed eight new condenser microphones from the ceiling to accomodate the close-mic'ing techniques of the popular vocal arts without loosing the ensemble feel of all singers cutting vocals at the same time.
