Welcome to the Iowa State University Orchestra Program homepage!

 

Orchestras at Iowa State have a long tradition of excellence, and the ISU Orchestra Program continues this tradition by presenting exciting, intellectually stimulating and emotionally moving concerts every year! The 2014-2015 season features a host of audience favorites including Beethoven's Symphony no. 5, Smetana's The Moldau, Wagner's The Ride of the Valkyries, Holst's The Planets, and Dvorak's Symphony No. 9 "From the New World." The ISU Chamber Orchestra will be presenting works by Golijov, Villa-Lobos, Mendelssohn, Mozart, Respighi, and Holst.

For the final concert of the year the combined ISU Choirs and Symphony will present Brahms' masterpiece - his German Requiem in CY Stephens Auditorium.

Continuing our celebration of the American orchestral tradition and sustaining our commitment to the performance of living composers, the ISU Orchestra Program will be presenting works by Jennifer Higdon, Michael Daugherty, and Michael-Thomas Foumai.

The ISU Orchestra Program is social! The ISU Symphony is on Facebook and Twitter, and we have our own YouTube Channel. Check out the links and take a look at clips from our past performances! Now that you can watch us, be sure to like us, and follow us too!

I am excited about the musical and educational opportunities this year. I hope you will join us either as a member of our orchestras or as a member of our audience. Please explore our newly updated site to find out more about upcoming concerts, how to join the orchestra, scholarship opportunities, and ways you can be a part of the amazing work these students do.

 

Thank you for your continued support!
