The Chamber Orchestra rehearses every Wednesday afternoon in the University Concert Hall in the School of Music.
The Chamber Orchestra is, as its name suggests, a smaller ensemble than the Symphony Orchestra, and positions are gained by audition. Non-music students are welcome. Auditions are usually held once a year in the first week of the Autumn semester. Schedules are usually displayed on the notice board in the main entrance of the School of Music - so keep your eyes posted if you would like to be considered!
