Shasta College Concert Orchestra

Announcing the Fall 2017 Auditions

The Shasta College Concert Orchestra and advanced Chamber Strings are conducted by Shasta College faculty member Dr. Matthew Brooks. As a preparatory college orchestra, the Concert Orchestra ensemble aims to provide a challenging and rewarding ensemble performing experience for all developing musicians, regardless of age. One of the benefits of this ensemble is that it is made up of a collection of musicians from Shasta College, as well as community members and school-aged students from the surrounding area. Students and novice adults are encouraged to audition for this orchestra as preparation for eventually joining the Shasta Symphony Orchestra. As this ensemble is a course offering at Shasta College, college credit is available but not required. School-aged students may even earn college credit prior to graduating from high school.

Advanced students enrolled in Concert Orchestra may also be invited to participate in the Chamber Strings as part of this course. Chamber Strings offers the most advanced Concert Orchestra musicians the opportunity to learn and perform standard string repertoire of a higher calibre. Later this fall, the Chamber Strings will have an opportunity to perform with the North State Symphony as the Cascade Theater!

Seating auditions for all orchestral instruments (new and returning musicians) will be held:

  • Wednesday, August from 4:00-5:30pm (Rm 633)
  • Saturday, Jan. 19 from 9:00am-5:00pm (Theatre)

A sign-up is now available online at: www.SignUpGenius.com/go/4090C48A5A829AAFE3-fall1 

Audition material and instructions for each instrument can be requested from Dr. Brooks via email, or can be picked up on the Concert Orchestra Bulletin Board outside room 608.

If you have any questions about the Shasta College Concert Orchestra or about scheduling auditions, please contact Dr. Brooks at mbrooks@shastacollege.edu or 242-2365.
