The UA Philharmonic Orchestra

The UA Philharmonic was founded in 2001 as another orchestra for School of Music students, non-majors and other members of the UA community.  The Philharmonic is conducted by doctoral students András Derecskei, T. Andre Feagin, and Juan Montoya, who are supervised by Dr. Thomas Cockrell. Frequent sectional rehearsals lead by graduate students emphasize the improvement of technical and ensemble skills.  The orchestra performs two concerts a semester in Crowder Hall.

UA students may participate on a for-credit or extracurricular basis. T/Th, 7:30 - 9:30 P.M.  Audition informationPlease contact Dr. Cockrell for information.
