Orchestral Ensembles

Campus Orchestra

The Campus Orchestra offers students who are not music majors the opportunity to play in a University ensemble with limited performance demands. The orchestra usually performs one major concert per semester. No formal audition is required, but a minimum level of competence is expected as this adds to everyone’s enjoyment of the orchestra experience.

The orchestra rehearses and performs the finest orchestral literature available, from well-known works to premieres of new compositions. The orchestra performs four to six concerts per year, in addition to working with the University Opera Theatre on two productions per year. Admission is by audition only.
