Concert Orchestra

The Concert Orchestra is a full symphony orchestra performing at an intermediate level.

This orchestra provides experience in rehearsing and performing a wide range of shorter works from the Classical, Romantic, and Contemporary periods. Overtures, marches, suites, and isolated symphonic movements make up much of this group's repertoire.
