Membership in the University Symphony Orchestra is open to any UW-Eau Claire student by audition. Each year, openings exist for talented violinists, violists, cellists, and bassists. String players, regardless of academic major, are encouraged to pursue their musical interests through participation in the University Symphony Orchestra. The ensemble’s wind and percussion sections--comprised of advanced players--are auditioned by the wind-percussion faculty each year.
