The Middlebury College Orchestra is a full symphony orchestra, under the direction of conductor Andrew Massey. The orchestra’s goal is to bring students together to present great orchestral music at the highest possible standard of performance — and to have a wonderful time doing it!
The ensemble strives to include as many Middlebury College students who play orchestral instruments as possible. An audition is required for admission and placement.
Each year the Beucher Concerto Competition is held, choosing a member of the Middlebury College Community to appear as soloist with the orchestra during the Spring Semester. This year, the solo concerto performance will take place during the March 15th concert. The auditions will be held at the end of J-term, on January 28th. There is more information here.
Rehearsals take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 7:00 - 9:00 p.m., in the Mahaney Center for the Arts Concert Hall throughout the fall and spring semesters. Consistent rehearsal attendance and individual practice are central expectations of orchestra membership. Interested students should contact Andrew Massey at firstname.lastname@example.org.
