Avila Chamber Orchestra
Avila Chamber Orchestra is a non-auditioned ensemble. All Avila students and faculty are welcome to participate in this ensemble. The ensemble’s foremost function is to accompany the choir concerts and musicals, but also performs as a standalone entity. The primary makeup of the group are string instruments, but can include any instrument called in the scores performed.
The Avila drum line performs at sporting events on campus including football, basketball and other invitational events. The spirited group provides energy and fun for the entire campus.
Auditions are held each April for the coming academic year. New First-Year Students and Transfer Students may audition during orientation in August. Students auditioning for the ensemble should be prepared to match pitch and sight-read. A prepared solo is strongly recommended, but not required.
