Ensembles - Orchestra
Conducted by Dr. Clifton Evans, the UTASO presents 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. UTASO members successfully auditioned or substituted with prominent area orchestras such as the Fort Worth Symphony, the New Arlington/Las Colinas Symphony, the San Angelo Symphony, the Irving Symphony, the Texas Chamber Orchestra, and the East Texas Symphony. They have participated in important Summer Festivals such as the Aspen Music Festival, the Hot Springs Music Festival in Arkansas, the Blossom Music Festival in Ohio, and the Texas Music Festival in Houston. The orchestra is 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 UTASO members based on their audition.
