Philharmonia Chamber Orchestra

Director: Dr. Tyler White

The Philharmonia Chamber Orchestra is a highly select instrumental ensemble that provides accompaniment annually to one production of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln's Opera program, and that performs the virtuoso concert repertoire of the 18th through 21st centuries written for smaller orchestral forces. The ensemble follows a rehearsal schedule approximating that of professional ensembles, preparing its performances in a small number of intensive rehearsals.

Membership in the Philharmonia Chamber Orchestra is determined by audition each semester. Audition music and schedule information can be obtained from Tyler White (402-472-7698).
