USC Orchestras

USC Symphony Orchestra, Campus Orchestra and Chamber Orchestra offer unparalleled opportunities for students to work with some of the best music directors and guest artists.

The premier orchestra ensemble, the USC Symphony Orchestra, has received accolades for its fine and mature performances, led by acclaimed director, Donald Portnoy.

You don't have to be a music major to be a part of the USC Campus Orchestra. With a less intense rehearsal and performance schedule, ensemble members can experience a rewarding artistic outlet.
