About the Middlebury College Orchestra

The MCO is a full symphony orchestra devoted to exploring the exciting, dynamic repertoire written for orchestra over the last two and a half centuries, from Bach and Mozart to Adams and Lutoslawski.  We welcome students from all disciplines, and encompass faculty and staff members, community members, and professional players when possible.  

The orchestra presents at least two concerts a year of major repertoire spanning music from the baroque to the present day.  Over the last two decades, the orchestra has performed with professional and student soloists, the College Choir, competition winners, in theater productions, festivals and symposia, and premiered many new compositions and special projects.  In our latest venture we recorded an original film score to a short animated film created by the Digital Learning Arts program (DLA) which premiered last May.
