This ensemble of approximately 50 student musicians performs major orchestral literature from the seventeenth century to the present. Conducted by Dr. Colin Holman, the Orchestra typically performs four concerts per year in collaboration with the University Chorus. The Orchestra has also worked with an array of student, faculty and guest soloists, including Robert Hanford from the Lyric Opera of Chicago Orchestra.
Membership in Orchestra is open to all students with performance experience. Auditions are held during the first week of each semester to determine enrollment and chair placement. Audition information, as well as online audition sign-up, is available here.
