Ensembles - Orchestra

Conducted by Dr. Clifton Evans, the UTA Orchestras present a season of concerts consisting of major works from the standard orchestral repertoire.  Through the performance of these works, students are exposed to different musical styles while acquiring the orchestral skills necessary to develop their professional careers.  There are two ensembles with which students can perform: the UTA Symphony Orchestra, a full symphony orchestra made up strictly of students, and the Faculty and Friends Chamber Orchestra, an ensemble made up of Faculty, professional colleagues in the area, and our finest students.  The orchestras are open to any student at the University who qualifies by audition, including both music and non-music majors.  Merit-based scholarships are made available to qualified members based on their audition.
