String Chamber Orchestra, directed by Dr. Robert Gregg.
The Belmont String Chamber Orchestra is a university ensemble that studies excellent string literature and provides string players of all majors with an artistic opportunity to perform in a concert ensemble. The orchestra will study literature not typically performed by the Symphony Orchestra (e.g., Baroque and string orchestra music). As well, the ensemble serves as an outlet for vocal and instrumental music education majors to study a secondary instrument and provides a lab setting for conducting students.
Membership is open to all students regardless of major. Non-music majors are strongly encouraged to participate. Some university-owned instruments are available for use. A short part-placement audition will be held to determine seating in the ensemble. The String Chamber Orchestra meets in the fall and spring semesters on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 1:00-1:50 PM in Room 303 of Belmont Heights Baptist Church and performs three to four concerts annually. The course (MUN 4740.01: String Chamber Orchestra) is available for one hour of credit.
