MUS 105/305 section B:
The UIS Chamber Orchestra is a small ensemble open to all string, wind and percussion players. With its flexible instrumentation, the ensemble performs everything from Renaissance dances to Argentinean tangos. Additionally, the UIS Chamber Orchestra often joins with the UIS Chorus to perform mass movements and other similar repertoire and breaks into smaller ensembles to perform more intimate chamber music.
The director of the UIS Chamber Orchestra is Mr. Todd Cranson. String players are always welcome, and all wind and percussion players are encouraged to contact the director to inquire about current needs. Repertoire is chosen based on instrumentation.
Contact the director, Mr. Todd Cranson, now to get involved and influence future instrumentation decisions. No auditions are required.
Thursday 5:40 – 7:30 in VPA 33
