Large ensembles provide University of Oregon students with exemplary experiences in collaborative music making. Our innovative and expert conductor-teachers enthusiastically share their deep knowledge of repertoire—traditional and modern—with talented student performers.
Musicians in the UO’s large ensembles perform classic masterworks, premiere new compositions, collaborate in the creation of trendsetting performance events, and work side-by-side with some of today’s leading composers, conductors, and scholars. Frequent tours and convention performances allow our students to share their artistry in diverse venues for new audiences.
UO large ensembles emphasize highly varied musical styles and genres, large and small group experiences, and a commitment to preparing the musicians of tomorrow.
