Under the direction of Dr. Mark Jelinek, the University Chamber Orchestra is an intimate group comprised mainly of string instruments with the occasional use of wind and percussion instruments. The Chamber Orchestra's repertoire focuses on literature indigenous to this type of ensemble as well as some pops music. The group performs twice yearly in a variety of settings. At least one concert features a guest soloist. One notable guest artist with the Chamber Orchestra was harpist, Deborah Henson-Conant. Membership is By Audition.
