The Case Camerata Chamber Orchestra ( MUEN 386 ) is open to all CWRU students, faculty, and community members by audition who play string instruments and desire to perform in an flexible but very high quality string instrumental music setting. The group rehearses twice per week for a total of 90 minutes and performs 2 to 4 concerts per academic year. The repertoire performed in this ensemble is wide ranging and drawn from a variety of smaller chamber genres that include pieces from the baroque, classical, romantic and contemporary stylistic periods. Some of the pieces are conducted and others are rehearsed collaboratively by the group with coaching from the director. The group collectively decides the program and many pieces use soloists from within the group.
All Auditions for the Case University Circle Orchestra ( MUEN 385, Monday and Wednesday 7:00 – 8:30 pm ) and Case Camerata Chamber Orchestra ( MUEN 386, Tuesday and Thursday 7:00 – 8:30 pm ) will be held in the Denison/Wade Rehearsal Facility beginning on Monday, August 29, and continue through Friday, September 2, 2016.
