Vassar College Orchestra

The Vassar College Orchestra provides unique performance opportunities for both rising and established instrumentalists.  The symphonic repertoire covers a wide spectrum of genres and is selected with focus on the technical and musical development of the students

Soloist Competition

Each year the Music Department holds a competition to provide Vassar students the opportunity to perform as soloists with the Vassar College Orchestra. The competition is open to instrumentalists and vocalists. Students audition with a movement of a concerto, an aria or a short piece for solo and orchestra. Auditions are held during the last week of the fall semester, and students perform the following spring.
