Northwest Symphony Orchestra

The Northwest Symphony Orchestra is the newest of our large ensembles.  This full symphony orchestra performs two concerts per semester and is open to all students on campus, regardless of major.  Repertoire is representative of music from the Renaissance through brand new works, in various styles from chamber pieces to large-scale multi-movement symphonies.  The Northwest Symphony often features guest artists, including students who win the annual Concerto and Aria Contest each spring.

Enrollment in the string section is open to all students, with a playing audition for chair placement only, prior to the beginning of the fall semester.  Winds are percussion are selected through live audition at the same time they complete their Wind Symphony audition.

The Northwest Symphony Orchestra rehearses Tuesdays, 6:30 pm – 8:10 pm.  The string section has a weekly section rehearsal on Mondays, 6:00 pm – 6:50 pm.
