Wesleyan University Orchestra|
|This course may be repeated for credit.|
The Wesleyan University Orchestra is a student-community ensemble that is open to everyone with a passion for orchestral literature. Prospective members should have an intermediate-to-advanced skill level of performance on an orchestral instrument and be a part of the following groups: Wesleyan music majors, nonmajors, faculty and staff, and community musicians. The orchestra performs music from all genres and time periods, ranging from the 18th-century "classics" to contemporary academic and popular compositions.
The orchestra presents four hour-long concerts each year: middle of October: a "masterworks" program, featuring one of the department's private lessons teachers, or a guest artist, as a soloist; early December: a program of popular, film, and holiday music; early March: children's concert; and early May: a "masterworks" program, featuring the winner(s) of the annual Wesleyan Concerto Competition. The Orchestra occasionally collaborates with the Wesleyan Concert Choir.
