"The University of Evansville Orchestra and String Ensemble offer students of all majors the opportunity to perform in both orchestral and chamber settings. With our string faculty and the resident Eykamp String Quartet, students collaborate, receive coaching, and perform with professional musicians from the Evansville Philharmonic Orchestra."
— Dr. Jimmy Chen, Director of Orchestral Activities
The University Symphony Orchestra is an ensemble open to both music majors and non-music majors. Composed of nearly 60 student musicians, the orchestra presents four concerts each year featuring repertoire ranging from time-honored favorites to avant-garde masterpieces as well as solo appearances by guest artists, UE music faculty and winners of the annual Vukovich concerto competition.
The String Ensemble is a select group of string performers with a focus on literature for the small ensemble. Performing opportunities have included appearances in the Neu Chapel Bach Cantata Series, Vespers Concerts, Holiday Pops, Baroque opera, and campus recitals.
