Chamber Orchestra is our advanced string Ensemble. Students in this course must audition and are enrolled year-round (three trimesters). For other eligibility requirements, see Audition Information & Requirements below.
The literature performed in this ensemble ranges from traditional orchestral classics to arrangements, and modern compositions. Due to its rigorous nature, students are expected to commit to a minimum of 5 hours of personal practice time per week. While it is not a requirement, students are also encouraged to receive private instruction on their instrument.
Many of our Chamber Orchestra students also play in ensembles throughout the county including MCCSO(Mira Costa College Symphony Orchestra), SDYS(San Diego Youth Symphony), CYO(Civic Youth Orchestra), and RSO(Renaissance Symphony Orchestra).
