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.

Menu

 

The Symphony Orchestra has an exciting year planned, which will include an All-American concert in October (featuring Copland's Appalachian Spring), Brahms Piano Concerto no. 2 in November (featuring Daniel Paul Horn), Tchaikovsky's fifth under the direction of Brazilian conductor Ricardo Averbach in February, and Mozart and Strauss in April.  We will have a period where chamber orchestras and ensembles from the membership will prepare and perform music without conductor, and the orchestra will also play for the Christmas Festival and the Concerto Competition Honors Concert.  Last year, the orchestra was honored by winning third place in the prestigious American Prize for Orchestral Performance (college/university division).  

Perhaps there is a place in the orchestra for YOU!  I hope to see you at auditions!
