An informal audition is required for admittance to the Chamber Orchestra. Membership is open to both music and non-music majors. The ensemble is made up of students of various majors, levels, and musical experiences, so all Morris string players are encouraged to audition.
All interested students should register for Chamber Orchestra (MUS 1370) prior to the audition date, but admittance is only finalized once they pass an audition. In the weeks leading up to the fall semester, the director will send an email to all registered students prompting them to sign up for a 5-minute audition slot on the date listed below.

Students may also audition for spring semester entrance to the Chamber Orchestra. These auditions take place during the final weeks of the fall semester and are set up individually with the director. Please contact Eric Olson to set up an audition time.
