The Drew University Orchestra (MUS 222) is open to Drew students who represent all departments and majors at the university and come together to share their love of music. The ensemble also welcomes community members. Rehearsals are on Thursday nights from 7:00 – 9:30 pm, and culminate in a performance each semester.

2016-17 Concert Dates:

Friday, December 1, 2017

Monday, April 23, 2018
Additional small performances may be scheduled during the year, and will be listed in the course syllabus.


The Orchestra is open to all students. Placement auditions will be held during the first week of classes each semester. The purpose of the audition is to assess each orchestra member’s ability and, for string players, placement within the section.
