One of the first ensembles established at the founding of CLU, the University Symphony is a 50-60 member ensemble that performs several times each semester and has a diverse repertory ranging from the latest in contemporary composition to standards of the symphonic repertory. Qualified student soloists and conductors are often a featured. While the Symphony is an integral part of the program for music majors and minors it is open to all CLU students. Membership is by audition only with an emphasis on placing students in positions that best serve to promote their individual musical growth. Dr. Daniel Geeting, senior music department faculty member, is the conductor.
