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 and an intermediate-to-advanced skill level of performance on an orchestral instrument: 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 the 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
Early May: a "masterworks" program, featuring the winner(s) of the annual Wesleyan Concerto Competition
The Orchestra occasionally collaborates with the Wesleyan Concert Choir.
