Symphony Orchestra

Symphony Orchestra

The Wheaton College Symphony Orchestra is committed to the exploration and performance of major orchestral literature from the 18th century to the present.



The 2014-15 season will start out big for the Wheaton College Symphony Orchestra: we will play Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf for over 4,000 children (in two children’s concerts), acted out with dancers; we will be the featured ensemble on the Homecoming Concert; and we will collaborate with the choirs of the Conservatory and with international vocal soloists to present, under the direction of Maestro John Nelson, Haydn’s magnificent work, The Creation.  In addition, we will be having a Fall Break retreat at Bair Lake Bible Camp in Jones, Michigan, where we will do a service project, experience a team building course, and definitely have a great time!  If you play an orchestral instrument—strings, woodwinds, brass, percussion, harp—there is a good chance that there is a place in the orchestra for YOU!  I hope to see you at auditions!
