This ensemble invites advanced beginners or skilled amateurs (ages 12 and older) to rehearse and perform together. It is open to anyone who can read music and enjoys playing classical symphonic repertoire.
The first night of the session is an organizational meeting that all members must attend. Instruments are not needed on the first night during the fall or spring sessions. However, during the summer session you are required to bring your instrument. Music is handed out, and if you are interested in auditioning for a leadership chair, you may sign up for an appointment at this time. Seating audition material is taken from the concert music for the semester, and auditions are held during the second class. You are not required to audition to be in this group, unless you are interested in a leadership position.
If you are a new member, please contact the University Community Orchestra to let them know which instrument you play and which part you prefer (Violin 2, Flute 1, Viola, etc.).
