The Rio Rock Ensemble is a student ensemble consisting of guitars, bass, drums, keyboards, and vocalists and specializing in classic rock music. An audition is required. The ensemble will perform in two concerts on campus each year, in addition to performances off campus at area schools, fundraising benefits, and other community events.
In addition to the Rock Ensemble’s concerts, they will occasionally perform in conjunction with other Rio groups. In the Spring of 2012, the ensemble served as the “orchestra” for the University’s production of the hit Broadway show The Who’s Tommy.
