The Orchestra

The Whitworth Symphony Orchestra performs the standard orchestral repertoire as well as modern and commissioned works, including a recent premiere of Gwyneth Walker’s “Let America Be America Again”.  The orchestra also performs with guest soloists and winners of its annual concerto competition, and has enjoyed side-by-side concerts with the Coeur d’Alene Symphony.  The orchestra was invited to perform at the Washington Music Educator’s Association regional and All-Northwest conferences, and was the featured collegiate orchestra in 2018.  As part of its outreach, recruiting and cultural exchange goals, the orchestra tours biennially.  Previous tours have included Hawaii, New York City, San Francisco, and Salt Lake City.  The orchestra is open to all qualified string musicians, regardless of major.  The top wind and brass musicians of the Wind Symphony are selected for membership in the Whitworth Orchestra.   Our students benefit from outstanding opportunities including performance classes, chamber music, master classes (from such notable teachers and violinists James Buswell and Charles Castleman), and clinics with principal players of the Spokane Symphony. String Quartets and the newly founded String Chamber Orchestra provides additional opportunities for the most ambitious players.
