The UAA Sinfonia is a string ensemble, in which students rehearse and perform alongside faculty members as well as in collaboration with the Wind Ensemble and University Singers.
The Sinfonia's primary function is to provide a performing ensemble for the department of music's majors and minors; membership is however drawn from all academic areas of the University as well as from the community.
During the semester, the orchestra rehearses on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4:00 to 5:45 P.M.
String Chamber Ensemble
In addition to the Sinfonia, students participate in small ensembles. Chamber music ensembles are available for students interested in groups from Duets to Octets and beyond. Strings, Winds, Brass, Percussions and Piano can combine to rehearse and perform works from a wide spectrum of these combinations of instruments. Weekly coaching and public performances are part of the course.
