Orchestral Ensembles

University Symphony Orchestra

The University Symphony Orchestra is a select ensemble of 80 to 90 students who are primarily music majors. 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.

Campus Orchestra

The Campus Orchestras are open to students of varied majors within the University and provide opportunities to explore orchestral music and collaborate with guest musicians and other University ensembles. Each Campus Orchestra rehearses once per week (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday evenings) and performs concerts in Ted Mann Concert Hall twice per semester. Although a minimum level of competence is expected as this adds to the students' overall orchestra experience, a formal audition is not required. For more information about the campus orchestras, please email the designated instructor. If you are interested in joining Campus Orchestras, sign up for MUS 3430.
