Symphony Orchestra

The Syracuse University Orchestra offers a unique experience in music making at the highest level.

The Director of Orchestral Studies at S.U. is Dr. James Tapia. While symphony orchestras are associated in the popular imagination with music that is old and "classic," our orchestra is committed to stylistic diversity, with a repertoire that spans four centuries.

Our concerts routinely pair works of Beethoven and Brahms with twentieth - century masterpieces, and new works by students and faculty. in addition, the group regularly collaborates with school choral ensembles and with gifted soloists, many of whom are student winners of our annual concerto competition.

Four concerts and several reading sessions are scheduled each year.
