Chamber Orchestra - Welcome
The Grand Valley State University Chamber Orchestra provides an opportunity for outstanding members of the GVSU Symphony Orchestra to perform a variety of works for small string ensemble in several venues.
Membership is by audition and grows out of the membership for the Symphony Orchestra. NOTE: All audition material is now available on the Symphony Orchestra Audition page.
Highlights this year will include performances on campus during Symphony Orchestra concerts, during the String Leadership Day concert, a collaboration on a 20th century Chilean work for string octet and cello soloist with Pablo Mahave-Veglia, and a January 16 performance with the Grand Rapids Symphony.
In addition, several members of the Chamber Orchestra will perform with faculty and other Grand Rapids Symphony members in three Fall Arts Concerts.
ANNOUNCING: The Chamber Orchestra will be taking a week-long tour to London, UK in early May of 2013! Basic information now available here.
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.
