Chapman Music Ensembles for String Musicians

Strings students have many performance opportunities, including three large ensembles (The Chapman Orchestra, University Wind Symphony, and the Chapman Big Band) and many small ensembles encompassing new music, percussion, strings, winds, brass, early music, jazz, and pep band.

There is no system of seniority in our music ensembles: students are selected and seated based on their talent and level of commitment, which means a first-year student has opportunities equal to any other student to participate.
