The Grand Valley State University Chamber Orchestra provides opportunity for outstanding members of the GVSU Symphony Orchestra to perform a variety of works written specifically for small ensembles. Membership grows out of the Symphony Orchestra.
During May of 2013 the Chamber Orchestra performed three concerts in London, UK.
Recently the Chamber Orchestra has been heard in a performance in Cook-DeWitt featuring the beautiful Britten Serenade for Tenor, Horn and Strings with faculty artists Min Jin and Richard Britsch, and accompanying the University Arts Chorale in performances of Mozart's Coronation Mass and Schubert's Mass in G.
Except for dress rehearsals, rehearsals will be held during from 4:30 to 5:20 on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Dr. Henry E. Duitman is the conductor, but students will begin to develop the type of independent playing found in the finest chamber ensembles, such as Orpheus. Contact Dr. Duitman if you would like more information.
