There are no prerequisites for this course however the SSO, not USask, will determine who is allowed to participate, and students will not be allowed to register for this course until after SSO participation has been confirmed.

Note: This course is considered an 'A' ensemble. This course may be repeated four times for credit. This course is graded on a pass/fail basis.
