Chamber Orchestra

We offer string players the opportunity to play in a small orchestra with or without a conductor. The elite string orchestra provides the community of Vermillion and the extended region with performances of literature of various musical periods.

Since its formation 20 years ago, the orchestra performs on campus each semester and has performed throughout South Dakota, Minnesota, Nebraska and Iowa. Recent guest soloists performing with the orchestra included the Kruse Duo and Luis Viquez.

Auditions & Rehearsals

The Chamber Orchestra is open to all university students and community string players. All USD string music majors, minors and scholarship awardees are required to audition. Auditions are scheduled Monday, Aug. 21 in room 155 of the Warren M. Lee Center for Fine Arts.

Rehearsals take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5 - 6 p.m.
