Join the UT Orchestra!


Are you an instrumentalist? Do you like playing in an orchestra? Don’t miss this opportunity to join the Community-Student Orchestra at The University of Tampa.

Students and community artists with experience in string orchestras or symphony orchestras are invited to participate in The University of Tampa Symphony Orchestra.

Membership in the UT Orchestra is open to any student, regardless of major, classification and experience level. You are NOT required to be a music-major in order to participate.

The University of Tampa Symphony Orchestra

The Symphony Orchestra presents one to two concerts each semester. The full orchestra is a combination of UT students and community members. Repertoire includes large instrumentation ranging from overtures to concertos, standard pieces and modern works. Rehearsals are Tuesdays 7-9 p.m. and Thursdays 4-5:15 p.m. (students only) in Music Building room 90. (Course number MUS-289)

Auditions will take place the first two days of classes in the fall. Please contact Nathan Madsen to schedule an audition. Auditions will consist of a three-octave scale, a short solo of the player’s choice and sight reading.

UT’s instrumental music faculty members are active performers with extensive professional experience. Get in touch with them through music@ut.edu or from the faculty directory.
