University-Community Symphony Orchestra

The University-Community Symphony Orchestra performs a diverse orchestral repertoire during its regular four-concert season. Concerts frequently feature solo works either performed by members of the orchestra or invited guest artists. The orchestra provides a medium for the reading and performance of new works. Students (with a conducting emphasis) conduct in both rehearsal and performance settings. Membership in the orchestra ensures its participants exposure to a wide variety of repertoire, improvement of ensemble skills, and solo opportunities. The orchestra is proud to have a diverse membership which includes students, staff, faculty, and community members who all work together to achieve the best in musical and social experiences.

The University-Community Symphony Orchestra rehearses on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, from 7:15 p.m. until 8:35 p.m., while classes are in session. Rehearsals are held in the Performing Arts Center, Room B-28. Sectionals will be held as needed.
