The UNLV Chamber Orchestra focuses on repertoire from the Baroque through the modern contemporary epoch written for small ensembles. Students in the Chamber Orchestra are introduced to a variety of performance practice styles and fundamentals of orchestral, chamber, and solo playing.

Faculty frequently perform with the chamber orchestra throughout the six-concert season. Readings of additional repertoire not covered during the concert season occur throughout the year to facilitate sight-reading skills and further exposure to repertoire.

An orchestral audition is required at the beginning of the semester.
