About the Emory University Symphony Orchestra
This university symphony is nationally recognized for excellence. Each year, the student musicians present an entire season of concerts, featuring both classic music and new works from the 21st century.
The symphony also collaborates with the renowned University Chorus to present choral-symphonic concerts. Students have a chance to collaborate with established faculty musicians and other guest artists, as well as to appear as soloists.
Because Emory is a liberal arts university, the symphony is made up of students not just from the Music Department, but from all academic areas. Many of the symphony musicians are music double-majors.
The Emory University Symphony Orchestra is featured regularly on Atlanta’s NPR affiliate.
