The SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA is a college and community orchestra dedicated to the rehearsal and performance of the finest traditional and contemporary orchestral literature. Its membership is comprised of musicians from ECC, with both full- and part-time students, music majors and non-music majors, and community members with a myriad of occupations and ages. The Symphony Orchestra performs in the Marsee Auditorium three times per year. Concert repertoire includes works for string and full orchestras, as well as solo and choral accompanying.
All members of the Symphony Orchestra are enrolled students at El Camino. They receive college credit in either SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA (MU 268) , or through non-credit participation in ORCHESTRA FOR THE OLDER ADULT (MU 570). All string players who can play at an intermediate level or higher are welcomed in the class. Woodwind, brass, and percussion players desiring to be in the orchestra must audition on the first day of class in the Fall semester. Only woodwind and brass students who have been in the ECC Band for at least one semester (to demonstrate your ability and reliability) may audition for these coveted positions. These players are expected to perform at an advanced level per the demands of the music, since they will not be doubling with others on the same part.
REHEARSALS are held in the Band Room, Marsee Auditorium Room 130, on Tuesday evenings from 7:00-10:00. The entrance to the rehearsal room is located off the patio on the north side of the auditorium. Parking is located nearby in the structure just behind the auditorium. An El Camino College parking permit is required. Sheet music and folders will be issued to all students. The ECC Instrumental Music Department has a limited number of instruments which may be checked out for use in the ensemble.
Interested musicians are invited to contact Dr. Joanna Medawar Nachef at firstname.lastname@example.org.
