Symphony Orchestra explores the full range of music literature, expanding members’ knowledge of composers and literature in this advanced study. Complexity of tuning and tone color is enhanced with the inclusion of winds and percussion. The Symphony Orchestra seeks motivated students who are able to pursue excellence through self-directed practice and who wish to perform frequently. Rehearsals will stress competence in the musical elements of phrasing, tone color, technique, and orchestral discipline. This ensemble will use standard orchestral literature. An audition consisting of a prepared solo of the student's choice and sight-reading a few selections is required. A prepared excerpt is also required at the August seating auditions and will be available ahead of time.
Symphony Orchestra was selected to perform at MMEA Tan-Tar-A in 2016
